Looking Forward….
Strategic Plan 2012-2015

Community Presence

Amelia Rising believes in the power of strong communities to end sexual violence. While Amelia Rising is a fundamental element for this important vision, networking and collaborating with community partners will be key to eradicating sexual violence from our communities.

Organizational Excellence

Amelia Rising believes in the power of change and the valuable process of growth. The organization has developed from a collective to adopting a formal modified policy-based model of governance.

Amelia Rising will have a stable organizational structure to support resilient adaptability and overall organizational excellence.

Community Responsiveness

Amelia Rising recognizes that sexual violence touches women from all walks of life. Similarly Amelia Rising recognizes that each woman is unique, as will be her journey to healing.

Amelia Rising will provide creative and innovative programming and break down barriers that limit access to services that meet the unique needs of survivors of sexual violence through-out the Nipissing District.
