Adopt a Family at the Shelter

Will you help this winter and Adopt a Family at the Calgary Women's Emergency Shelter?


As winter approaches, many Calgarians will find relief from the cold in their home, but many women and children will only find continued trauma and fear. They will be forced from their homes, fleeing family violence and abuse, physical injury and emotional pain. Finding safe shelter for women and children experiencing family violence and abuse can often be their only hope. 


Adopt a Family at the Shelter Today and help vulnerable families in our community 


Your donation will allow families impacted by family violence and abuse to rebuild their lives and will provide services, and the essentials they need. The basic necessities that most of us enjoy every day, such as doors that lock, nutritious food, warm clothing and beds. 


The cost to keep a family safe for one month is approximately $3,000 and includes (but is not limited to): food, counselling, utilities, clothing, and basic essential items. 


Whatever amount you can give will help a mother and her children. No donation is too small to make a difference.
