Volunteer Board Member: The Marguerite Centre

The Marguerite Centre is an 11-bed, long-term residential facility for women in recovery from addictions and abuse. We believe in the right for women to recover from their addictions in a safe residential setting where their unique needs will be met, their issues addressed and their voices heard. Our woman-centered, holistic approach to programming empowers women to create their own path to healing and recovery. Located in the Halifax Regional Municipality, the Centre is staffed 24 hours a day and it is the only facility of its kind for women in Nova Scotia. A number of new board appointments now need to be made.

The Role:

  • Contribute to overall strategy and direction through effective participation at meetings
  • Ensure that the Centre continues to operate independently and with integrity
  • Act as an ambassador for the Centre, promoting its work among stakeholders

The Candidate:

  • Possess an understanding legal issues surrounding the Not-For-Profit business world
  • Have a desire to work with a Board Team to steward our Strategic Plan and provide the perspective of legal navigation
  • Commitment to the Mission of the Centre
