Women of the Year Awards are back!

This year we are celebrating virtually! Join us on October 16th as we celebrate the many incredible women across Perth County who lead us through this tough year. 

We are hoping to raise $30 000 in support of OP, and we need your help. 

Visit our event page for the  silent auction, ticket sales, and more!


Optimism Place Women’s Shelter and Support Services supports women alone or with children to live free of abuse by providing shelter and confidential, nonjudgmental service. We are committed to ending the cycle of abuse and violence by raising awareness through prevention, intervention and education and advocacy.
