This award recognizes an individual or business that has significantly supported our mission. Over the years Action Read has benefitted enormously from a partnership with Guelph Wellington Women in Crisis. Through the Transition Program, Women in Crisis (WIC) has helped the women address the emotional, personal and learning barriers that violence and trauma create. WIC has provided support both within groups and through other support services to many women at Action Read. WIC has vocally and tirelessly contended that violence and abuse come in many forms, and that they are never acceptable. Action Read is so grateful for the expertise and commitment of this agency. It is with tremendous respect that we recognize their contribution to the community.
