For April 2023, JRC is Giving Back to Fort Garry Women’s Resource Centre!
Fort Garry Women’s Resource Centre is a not-for-profit, feminist organization supporting women to engage in healthy life choices for themselves and their families through innovative and responsive programming and excellence in service. They are committed to creating a community where women & children are safe, healthy, valued and empowered.
The centre is open to all women regardless of their cultural, racial, economic, social, religious and spiritual backgrounds. They are welcoming of individuals with differing experiences and those of differing abilities, ages and sizes. They welcome self-identified-women who identify as either heterosexual, lesbian, bisexual, trans, transgender, or intersex.
Fort Garry Women's Resource Centre provides a variety of resources including workshops and events on topics of interest to women to promote healthy choices through basic information, inspiration and sharing of resources. They also have a legal consultation clinic and offer a drop-in where women can have a safe place to use computers, the phone, access resources, and talk to Outreach staff. In partnership with Harvest Manitoba, they offer a monthly program for women and their families.Throughout the month of April, purchase cupcakes in-store at Academy, Island Lakes or The Forks, through SkipTheDishes, or online, and 5% of all sales will be donated to Fort Garry Women's Resource Centre so they can continue to provide all of their programs and services free of charge.

Together, we can help create a community where women & children are safe, healthy, valued and empowered.
