Nominator Comments:

The partnership is successful because of the trust and respect shared by the partners and the continuity of staff resources. Women in the program have benefited immensely from this program, and as a result, are better members of their community. Over the past year, 25 women have graduated from the program. Of those 25 women, four are in York University, seven are attending College, five are upgrading to get their GED to go to university or college, two are working, one started her own business, and there are many more success stories.

Have you been helped by a human service champion? We would love to hear about it.
