Women’s Advocate Program

If you need support reach out. You don’t have to be alone.

The Women’s Advocate is not a counsellor but acts as a referral service to women in need of support. To locate a shelter, visit THANL’s (Transition House Association of Newfoundland & Labrador) website at www.THANL.org.
