Elizabeth Fry Society of Mainland Nova Scotia
The Elizabeth Fry Society of Mainland Nova Scotia (EFMNS) is a non-profit, charitable organization that engages with vulnerable women, girls, and gender diverse people to foster reintegration, rehabilitation, personal empowerment and to address the root causes of criminalization. The people EFMNS supports are often at a high risk of returning to the cycle of poverty, homelessness and self-harm that can cause criminalization. EFMNS is devoted to improving the lives of community members in Nova Scotia through comprehensive housing supports, innovative programming initiatives, justice system reform and through building individual strength and capacity in all of the women we serve. EFMNS provides the structure for marginalized women, girls, and gender diverse people to transform their lives from a cycle of poverty and insecurity to one of stability, growth, and hope.
