Welcome to the Women's Place Resource Center based in Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia.
Our mission is dedicated to the well-being and economic status of women in the Kings, Annapolis and Digby Counties.
We work with communities to achieve this mission through a variety of Services as well as creating a safe place for women to gather, share, grow and be. By supporting women, we recognize that we in turn nurture the growth of children, families and the entire communities that we serve.
Our Sister Fair event is a celebration of womens' expressions in music and art. It also raises awareness of the Women's Place Resource Center and the Frances Mills-Clements Bursary.
In 2011-2012, the Women's Place Resource Center provided support to over 1,300 people over the phone, in-person and through programs and initiatives.
The Women's Place Resource Center has a new website design that uses state of the art technology to provide information to a much wider audience on various display devices. It is currently estimated that over 50% of web browsing is done with a smartphone or tablet device and that number is expected to grow to more than 80% in the next ten years. With the advent of handheld devices capable of displaying websites, the challenge has been to automatically bring the message to the small screen without the loss of readablity of the content. This site has been designed to display on many handheld devices and all of the most common browsers.
We plan to host another program in the new year (2013). Watch this spot for time and place. All programs are FREE.
The Step Programs are the missing link in the foundation for self-esteem and self-discovery: I am worthy, I can do, I will achieve. Workshops include Self-esteem, Assertiveness, Identifying your Values, Setting Goals and Implementing Change. We'll also cover Positive Affirmations; the Power of NO; Listening to Yourself; being Positively Charged; Anger Management; Healthy Relationships; Personal Boundaries; what it means to be Creative; Assertive/Aggressive/Passive-Aggression...the difference they make; Budgeting/Time Management; Goal Setting and much more!!
Tea and coffee are provided. Call 902-532-1898 or toll free 1-877-392-8800 to register or if you require more information.
