Special Guests Visit WFRC!

Recently we had the pleasure of hosting the Associate Minister of Children and Women’s Issues, Jill Dunlop MPP, tour our centre along with Amy Fee MPP (Kitchener South-Hespeler) & Mike Harris MPP (Kitchener-Conestoga).

She was touring agencies in the area that fall under the umbrella of the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services.

We are grateful for the funding we have received over the past several years for our violence against women services as well as programs that offer parental support for children’s mental health.
