As we are learning to cope with a new way of life with social distancing and isolation, tragedy strikes our province and rattles us to the core. We are left shaken, heartbroken, lost and grasping for understanding. We may not notice the impact this is having on our nervous system and we MUST take time to stay grounded. Our tendency might be to ignore the signs in our body or go on caring for others and not ourselves. We encourage you to take time for yourself even when it might not feel necessary. In these times of great fear and uncertainty, placing our focus on one thing that is certain...flowers coming up, birds singing...can offer some peace. Now more than ever we must be kind to ourselves and each other. We continue to answer emails & phone messages - firstname.lastname@example.org (902) 540-3044

"WOW, this COVID-19 Crisis is quite the ride; as an individual, a community, a country, and around the world. We are being forced to travel a path that we definitely were not expecting! The path has bumps, can feel uphill, has ugly bits, has beauty, can feel lonely, and we are unable to see the end which could be far away or just around the courner. The journey along the path will be easier for some than it is for others. Everything is new and we are all learning along the way. It is important to be kind to yourself, do what you can and that is enough. Please, help others along the way when and if you are able to. While the path for each of us will look different, we must be kind and understanding to one another and most importantly to ourselves. Stay on your path, take your time, and do only what you can.
A big part of what we do here at Second Story Women's Centre is advocacy. We are looking for your help...access to Sexual Violence Therapists is Missing and Needed in Lunenburg and Queens Counties! Sexualized violence is a grim reality for many Nova Scotians. People in Lunenburg and Queens deserve the support of Specialized Trauma Informed Therapeutic Counsellors. If you feel inspired to support our efforts to insist on government support on this issue; it is easy - drop by the centre and sign the back of an advocacy card that we will deliver to the Minister of Health and Wellness. For more information stop by or contact Rhonda at email@example.com
We are strengthening our message to the community on all of the wonderful work we do for women and gender oppressed individuals in our community. Part of this process includes an updated logo and website. We believe that if we all work together we can lift each other up and reach for the stars! We have also updated our website and hope it is easier to navigate and find the information you are looking for on resources, programs, events, our staff team, donation opportunities, and volunteer opportunities. It is a work in progress, please be patient with us and we iron out the finer details.
