We are rebuilding!
The Jane Paul Indigenous Women’s Resource Centre opened its doors in December 2015, under the name Mi’kmaw Women’s Resource Centre in Sydney, Nova Scotia. The JPC is a not for profit organization providing a variety of supports and services to Indigenous women who found themselves living in Sydney, off reserve and away from community resources, many of whom found themselves in high-risk situations experiencing violence, homelessness, poverty, addiction, mental health struggles, involvement with different agencies, disruption of family life, and/or experiencing involvement with the criminal justice system.
