In the spirit of International Women's Day (March 8), the Rainy River District Women's Shelter of Hope wants local women to know they are here to help.
If you're a woman and you require services such as court advocacy, risk assessment, supportive counselling, or assistance in preventing homelessness, contact outreach worker Laura Bailey at 271-4171.
She will be available in Fort Frances once per week at the office of the Rainy River District Victim Services Program (334 Scott St.)
You also can contact Bailey to have access to donated household items, or to drop off or otherwise donate items to help women in need.
The Shelter of Hope is not affiliated with the new Fort Frances Women's Centre.
