About Our Charity

The Central Alberta Women’s

Outreach Society has gone through many

transitions over the years. It began in 1984 as an agency (Status of Women) devoted to

supporting women dealing with women’s Issues, including family violence. In 1988 the agency changed its name to “The Central

Alberta Women’s Outreach Society” and

expanded its focus to providing basic support

services for women and children in response

to an overwhelming need identified in the

Red Deer Community. Today, domestic

and family abuse continues as a foundation

in programming, public service, and

public education.

Priorities are established to ensure initiatives make the best use of generously contributed resources as the organization addresses their very significant mission.

Current priorities are:

• Domestic/family abuse

• Dealing with the effects of poverty on

family, especially children

• Access to appropriate affordable housing

• Assistance while working with/through

the legal system
