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.
You and/or a representative from your organization is invited to attend an Workshop discussing the development of A.C.A.S.A. - Annapolis a Collaboration Against Sexual Assault on Wednesday, April 30, 2014 at the St. Luke's Anglican Church Hall, 342 St. George Street, Annapolis Royal from 10am to 3 pm.
Guest Speaker will be Dianne Crowell, Executive Director of Jane's Fund, an organization set up to continue the work of survivor and activist, Jane Hurshman.
In this workshop, we shall discuss the research that The Women's Place has been doing around the issue of sexual assault in Annapolis County, our resources, and the development of a collaborative response in our communities in Annapolis County.
Lunch will be provided by The Women's Place.
