"Writing is my passion. It is a way to experience the ecstatic. The root understanding of the word ecstasy—“to stand outside”—comes to me in those moments when I am immersed so deeply in the act of thinking and writing that everything else, even flesh, falls away."

Community Agency of the Week (2)

It's that time again where we feature the community agency of the week that promotes the empowerment of women. This week, the agency is The Well-Come Centre for Human Potential . This social service agency provides an emergency homeless shelter for women, while acknowledging that battling patriarchy is a starting point to fighting for their clients. Please visit their website for more details on their programs and the work that they do!

Also, The Well-Come Centre for Human Potential is holding an event on April 15, 2011 to celebrate local female artists and raise awareness on the issue of homeless women in our community. Please contact the agency for more information.
