Help us support women and children in Perth County

Join us for our annual Women of the Year Awards where we celebrate women doing incredible things in Perth County, while raising money to support women and children fleeing violence.


Throughout the pandemic domestic violence rates have increased and thus, we must increase our capacity to support the women and children we serve. 


Help support Optimism Place by donating to the event, buying raffle tickets, and spreading the word.
