We believe that women deserve to be respected and valued no matter what they choose. We also believe that women have the right to be fully informed about their options so they can make a decision they are comfortable with, not only for the moment they’re in, but for their futures as well. Note that because we invest time in the training of volunteers, we ask that you apply only if you are serious about this commitment.  We do require a commitment of one full day each week and are looking for long term commitments. Please contact marlo@hopeforwomen.ca for more information. (10/25)
