The Women's Place Resource Center is dedicated to being a place for women to come together, share, learn, experience, express and grow
Services available at the Center include:
Research: As a Center dedicated to the empowerment of women in our communities, we have engaged our staff, external consultants and the broader community in research that will positively impact policies that in turn impact women including pensions. To obtain copies of previous research, please contact the centre.
Space to Gather: The board room is available for women to use to gather, share and learn from one another. The space may be booked during regular office hours. Limit of ten. Please call to arrange a booking. FREE.
Resources: The staff at the center are available to provide information on resources, peer support, refer to appropriate community services and organizations, and offer programs that empower and support women.
Programs: The Center offers a variety of programs throughout the year reflecting requests from the community, depending on available funding and resources. Currently due to COVID-19, our workshops and information sessions are being carried out virtually. Please contact us or watch for further details.
Projects: we carry out special projects based on grants and proposals around various women centred issues. These are most often collaborative working with other community organizations and agencies.
Peer Support: Although we do not offer therapeutic counseling, we offer a safe space for supportive listening, problem solving and crisis response.
Frances Mills-Clements Bursary: This bursary is awarded annually to a woman within the community (Weymouth, east to the King's-Hants line) desiring to move forward to post-secondary education, regardless of age.
