The Power of WomenCentre

WomenCentre is a pioneering social innovation based in Halifax. Local women have come together to support those of them who face the gravest difficulties - mental illness, domestic violence, crime, chronic health problems, debt, childhood abuse and more - they have built a community where women can find the hope necessary to get their lives back on track.
