The Calgary Women's Emergency Shelter understands the role that everyone in our community shares in keeping our city safe and our family violence programs sustainable. In collaboration with other stakeholders, we have developed a Community Engagement Strategy to ensure that we stay focused on our mission to end family violence and abuse in Calgary.

In addition to fundraising events, and collaborative awareness events such as Family Violence Prevention Month each November, the Calgary Women's Emergency Shelter makes every effort to promote education and awareness about family violence and abuse within the community of Calgary.

Client Testimonials

My time at the Shelter kept me from harm. It also gave me the hope I thought I had lost. 

~ Jan

It’s still amazing to me that such a simple step as one phone call could so dramatically change a person’s life.

~ Catherine

After 50 years of marriage I didn’t want to leave him, but now I know how to keep myself safe in my own home.


It felt great to break the silence. I told my counsellor things about my marriage that I have never told anyone because I felt so ashamed.

~ Sierra
