Women’s Advocate

Dear Members,

I’ve compiled a list of reference points that can help connect you to any services you, your family, or friends may be in need of.  As always I can be reached at (902) 219-3866 if you’d rather speak with me about resources in your area.

In Solidarity,

Mary-Lynn Chittick
