Carolyn Connors Women’s Center hosts annual Women’s Day

Speaker Jasmine Grace

On May 11 we hosted the 11th Annual Women’s Center Day of Renewal.

The day is an annual celebration in honor of our Carolyn Connors Women’s Center, a safe refuge for our female guests. Currently in its 11th year, Women’s Day is an opportunity for ladies to be recognized and escape the stress and hardship of their daily lives.

Women guests participated in a full day of pampering, including manicures, hair and makeup, massages, jewelry making and more. We even had a snuggly therapy dog join the fun.  The event was capped off with a luncheon and motivational speaker, Jasmine Grace.

Jasmine Grace spoke about her history of prostitution, sexual exploitation, and addiction—and ultimately, her recovery. She is now an advocate in the anti-trafficking field and has founded Bags of Hope, an outreach ministry working with women living on the streets or in programs throughout the Boston Area. Her published work includes  The Diary of Jasmine Grace.

Our hope is that the women left the event feeling uplifted, respected, and inspired.

We’d like to thank the following groups who helped with the event.

  • Hair styling: HAIR by Christine & Co.
  • Massages: Perfectly Balanced Life
