City Women NQ

Our purpose is to come alongside women and girls in North Queensland who are doing it tough - to give them a hand to help them to find a way out of the hurt, and to give them hope.

About Us

In July 2018 Letitia Shelton, founder and CEO of City Women (Toowoomba), came to Townsville and shared her story of transforming a city at four public events. From this, over 60 women registered their willingness to make a difference here in Townsville.

We formed the City Women NQ Inc. Association to create a firm foundation for this to occur, and we celebrated our launch in October 2018. We are actively working on ways we can help the homeless, organising visits to women who are shut-ins, and implementing the Bella program in schools to help girls know their value, beauty & strength.

We have run, and will continue to run, a Money Management Basics course to help women who are struggling with their finances.

We have partnered with:

Eva's Place - to help establish a pregnancy and early parenting support centre in Townsville

RizeUp - to support women and their families who have been affected by domestic violence in Townsville

The Pyjama Foundation - to support children in fostercare

Our Misson

The mission of City Women NQ is to improve the lives of disadvantaged women and girls in our region. This includes:

  • Assisting women to break the cycle of drug, alcohol and other addictions,
  • Supporting and empowering women who have suffered from homelessness, abuse and domestic violence,
  • Supporting women released from prison,
  • Running programs and events for women and girls to help them discover that they have value and purpose,
  • Supporting and mentoring mothers, and
  • Partnering with other organisations, groups and individuals that help to restore and empower women and girls.

Our Vision

The vision of City Women NQ is a network of women showing love in action by being:


Reaching out to those in need


Facing what others may fear


Unified women working together for change
