Admired Women Project


Apr 9 - Jun 30


The Admired Women Project is a fundraiser for Our Place Society, auctioning portraits of local, admired women including our own Robin Farrell! Check out the beautiful portraits HERE!

The raised funds will be split between both Our Place‘s programs and services during the COVID-19 epidemic as well as the “Women in Progress Project” for Our Place’s Next Steps to Employment program. The unique Women in Progress project invites women to sign up for customized skills and training sessions and are supported in their job searches.

Portraits created by artist Elfrida Schragen. Learn more about Elfrida here.
