It was a great evening of conversations with our host, Dave Kelly, actress Cathy Jones, our CEO - Kim Ruse, Calgary Police Chief - Mark Neufeld, Lana Wells, frontline staff from our agency and the Calgary Police Service, and inspiring stories from those impacted by abuse. Community leaders and guests joined together to Take A Stand and help raise awareness and change the conversation around family violence and abuse.

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
