Town officials celebrating Gravenhurst Women's Centre today
A women’s resource centre is opening in Gravenhurst. At 3pm today, Gravenhurst council will honour five organizations through the award of a Terrence Haight Grant for $5,000. The Gravenhurst Women’s Centre (GWC) is one the recipients, which started in response to a project that was initiated by YWCA Muskoka. In a Gender Based study, Gravenhurst women were found to be at a greater disadvantage than their counterparts in Ontario and Muskoka. The new location, which is set to open this spring, will give women a safe space to learn and share new skills. Volunteers are still needed to help with this initiative.
