100 Women Who Care Who Care About Women Campaign


The Elizabeth Fry Society of Simcoe County’s new campaign 100 Women Who Care About Women hopes to raise $10,000 for shelter improvements and furniture at Joyce Kope House, our 25 bed, homeless shelter and half way house for women in Barrie.

We are seeking 10 Trailblazing Women who will each recruit 10 women who Care About Women to donate $100.  100 women donate $100!

Joyce Kope House provided 5,674 nights of safety to 494 of Simcoe County’s most vulnerable women last year.

We provide women with the opportunity to build stable lives while engaging and living in the community.  Now we are offering an opportunity for 100 women across Simcoe County to demonstrate their commitment to social justice and show that they also care about the most vulnerable women in our community.

Trailblazing Women who commit to recruit 10 women Who Care About Women, will be provided a satchel full of resources about the Elizabeth Fry Society of Simcoe and Joyce Kope House, recruitment/donation cards and lots of E. Fry SWAG to help them champion the cause.

Trailblazers will be honoured at a Champions for Social Justice International Women’s Day Event on March 8, 2017,

hosted by the Elizabeth Fry Society of Simcoe County.
