Elizabeth Fry died over 150 years ago, but her mission is our mission and it’s alive today.
The Elizabeth Fry Society is a feminist, community-based, non-profit organization that supports women and their children who have experienced violence, abuse, marginalization and or criminalization. Through crisis support, advocacy, education, and counselling, we work to empower individuals, create community awareness, and promote the safety and well being to those at risk of harm.
