“Step out of the history that is holding you back. Step into the new story you are willing to create.” - Oprah Winfrey
“The above quote exemplifies the role of support that is provided by CJH and my role in empowering women to write a new chapter in their story”, stated Lynn Fisher, Executive Director of Couchiching Jubilee House—a transitional housing program for women.

Since 2016, as the executive director of Couchiching Jubilee House, Lynn has been privileged to belong to a network of support that works collaboratively with the community to support and enable the vulnerable, through CJH and community programs, to be healthy, safe and live to their full potential. As part of that network, Lynn shares knowledge and skills gleaned from more than 30 years of working and volunteering in the not-for-profit and charitable sectors to impact the lives of women and children living in poverty. More than 20 of the 30 years were spent working and volunteering with various Indigenous women’s groups and organizations. Lynn gained a deeper understanding of respect and honour and how those values are integral when working with people, in particular, women, in a non-judgemental way honouring their strengths and their voices. Lynn is actively involved with the Mariposa Folk Foundation (coordinates the Interactive Stages 1 & 2); (past) Secretary of the Oro Agricultural Society (Oro World’s Fair), Vice-President of the Clowes Women’s Institute*, sits on the Edgar Hall Board, sits as treasurer on the Orillia and District Arts Council and is a former Executive Director of the Orillia and District Arts Council. Lynn lives on a farm, but not a farmer, with her husband, who is a beekeeper, their two horses, two cats and their dog.
