The Elizabeth Fry Society, Sudbury Branch believes in helping to create a caring society which respects and supports women. Our mission is to address the needs and circumstances of women in conflict with the law, or at risk of becoming in conflict with the law. We focus on promoting and providing community-based alternatives to incarceration, creating choices for women who are, have been or are at risk of being in conflict with the law, acting as a liaison between women and existing services, and promoting community awareness of issues impacting women.
