Who We Serve
In recognizing that the concept of gender identity is fluid, our services are available to women, girls, and other gender-oppressed people, including, but not limited to, those who are transgender and those who identify as non-binary on the gender spectrum.
Inclusion of men and boys may be considered in relation to the benefits that it may have for other genders.
Second Story Women’s Centre believes we all have the right to be treated with respect. We attempt to provide services and programs that are responsive to the needs of the community and are delivered in safe(r) spaces in a manner that is inclusive and promotes self-esteem, independence, individual choice, and decision-making.
Information, choices, options, and alternatives are offered in an objective manner that respects diversity and accepts differences.
Gender equity and safe, healthy relationships on the South Shore
Second Story Women's Centre supports women and gender-oppressed people, provides safer spaces and advocates for social change.
Second Story Women's Centre recognizes that we are on Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaw People. We honour the treaties that guide the relationships of our people.
