At the Pictou County Women's Resource & Sexual Assault Centre, we work towards a society that offers women a sense of empowerment, choice, and greater control over their lives. We have a long history of community development, working alongside many community and government partners to initiate necessary services and programs.
We offer support and advocacy for individual women, and are a member of the Pictou County Sexual Assault Response Team.
Our centre has two mandates: direct service and social change. We perform direct service by working one-on-one with women and providing the resources they need on a wide range of issues.
We work towards social change by increasing awareness and uniting women, communities, and government to create public policy that benefits women.
