The Calgary Women's Emergency Shelter (CWES) opened as Alberta's first women's emergency shelter in 1974. Each year over 12,000 Calgarians access the many programs and services offered. Over 3600 of our clients are children including more than half of the residents of the Shelter arriving with their mother fleeing abuse.
Most people know our role in providing emergency accommodation for women in need, but today the Calgary Women's Emergency Shelter is so much more than a shelter. For most of our clients, a stay at the Shelter is but the first step in a long journey towards a safe, fulfilling, and independent life that we do our best to help them create.
Our fondest wish is that some day our services will no longer be necessary. But until that day comes, we thank you for joining with us to support women, children, and families in need.
