About Us

AWRC services and programs are offered primarily in Antigonish and Guysborough counties. Our dual mandate of service delivery and social change is achieved through our direct services, programs and projects, outreach work, annual events, and extensive partnerships at the community, provincial and national levels.

The AWRCSASA recognizes we are on Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaw People.  We honour the treaties that guide the relationships of our people.

 

What We Do

We provide services to individual women and adolescent girls that include crisis and ongoing problem-solving support, information, advocacy, accompaniment and referral. Our services and programs are designed to provide a comprehensive approach to problem solving and are delivered in a manner that promotes self-awareness, independence, and individual decision-making.

We act as an initiator and as a participant in our community for action on numerous social issues affecting women. We undertake research, community development and community education initiatives that promote the well-being of women. In addition, we extend some services and programs to women’s family members, male and female survivors of sexual assault, and adolescent girls and boys.

Our Approach to Working with Women

The Antigonish Women’s Resource Centre is guided in its work by women’s experiences and knowledge. We recognize that women are experts on their own lives. The role of the Women’s Centre is to provide women with the information and support they need to make informed and healthy decisions for themselves and their children.

Mission Statement

The Antigonish Women’s Resource Centre is an independent, feminist, community-based organization. We provide information, support services and programs for women of all ages and backgrounds in an environment that is sensitive to women’s needs. We recognize and address issues of concern to women and their families through community development, education and research. We work together with women in our community to create a just and equitable society.
