This week in Herstory 2012, we honour the achievements of Betty Ann Baker, an advocate for the underprivileged, unemployed and disadvantaged in the Niagara Region. In 1981, she helped create Niagara Peninsula Homes, which now manages 2,700 non-profit housing units. She is a driving force behind the Niagara Women’s Enterprise Centre, Niagara Presents (a non-profit specialty food company), and Team Energi, a youth apprenticeship program in green housing trades. Diagnosed with macular degeneration, she is also an advocate for the CNIB. Betty Ann has dedicated her energy and passion to helping others.
