For the month of August, we’re shining a light on the Elizabeth Fry Society of Peterborough. Check them out and learn about the good work they do in our community.
The Elizabeth Fry Society of Peterborough is committed to advocating and providing services to all women in our community with a special focus on women who have been victimized, marginalized, criminalized and institutionalized. We are committed to ending the criminalization of poverty, addiction, mental health, and domestic violence. We recognize the rights of women to dignity and respect in all aspects of their involvement with the criminal justice system. We are committed to working with other agencies and all levels of government with similar principles and objectives.
The Elizabeth Fry Society of Peterborough is incorporated under the laws of the Province of Ontario. The Board of Directors and the Society’s employees uphold our philosophy and policies and honour the best interests of those persons that we assist at all times.
