Happy International Women’s Day! I hope that you take some time today to honour and celebrate the women in your lives.
At Nellie’s it is humbling and empowering to work with women everyday who show strength and courage when faced with the very difficult decision to leave an abusive situation and come to our shelter. Today I would like to honour these women as well as the caring and dedicated staff who support them through their journey towards a new life.
On behalf of everyone at Nellie’s, I would like to wish you a joyful, exciting, and empowering International Women’s Day!
– Margarita Mendez, Executive Director
