The Saint John Women's Empowerment Network has been in existence in Saint John since 1994. Our vision is a community in which women are empowered, living sustainable lives, and are contributing as full partners in society.
We are a strong, resilient organization that has made a difference in the lives of women and continues to make an impact on our community. Our focus is to strengthen and deepen our roots so that we can continue to enable, engage, and empower women in Saint John.
We understand that women often face systematic barriers which prevent them from moving out of poverty. We work with women to ensure their voices are heard by decision makers and with influencers to help effect change.
The Saint John Women's Empowerment Network was originally under the name The Urban Core Support Network until 2014.
