Optimism Place Women’s Shelter and Support Services helps women and their children in Perth County to live free of abuse by providing shelter and confidential, non-judgmental service. The Optimism Place is committed to ending the cycle of abuse and violence by raising awareness through prevention, intervention and education and advocacy.
The event is sponsored by a Rosemary Speirs Leadership Grant from the Equal Voice organization. The leadership grant is available to women who participated in the Daughters of the Vote Initiative, a program that brought 338 young women to represent their ridings on Parliament Hill on International Women’s Day.
