Community Connections for Women's Safety

In March 2015, the Community Connections for Women's Safety (CCWS) program came to end resulting in two reports from Stakeholders meeings. At these meetings, Adrienne Pullen, Ava Perraton, and Michele Walker (author of the Addendum) brought the communities up to date with the Community Connections for Women’s Safety program’s work and shared the next steps forward. Feel free to read the Gender-Based Analysis, Community Plan and Addendum to the Community Services reports that were available at the meetings.
