Get Involved

Every year, hundreds of women are assisted by Elizabeth Fry Toronto’s programs at the Wellesley Street site and in the courts and institutions. Your support provides resources to help marginalized and at-risk women develop the capacity to make informed decisions to create long-lasting, positive changes in their lives and their children.

Susan is a public speaker, educating people about the criminal justice system and legal rights. She exudes confidence and speaks with passion. It is hard to imagine that just a year ago, Susan was struggling with low self-esteem and was extremely shy. After a long history of incarceration, Susan was determined to change her life for the better. Susan joined the Peer Leadership program and developed public speaking skills, connected with positive role models and built her confidence. Susan is now a community educator, has re-connected with her family and is mentoring new members of the Peer Leadership program.
