We are all about empowerment.
Whether it’s through direct service, capacity building, education or advocacy, our job is to empower people, organizations, and communities to break the cycle of domestic violence.
As a non-profit organization, we offer a range of programs and services, including:
- Peer support groups and mentorship for women who have experienced domestic violence, are at risk of being abused, or women that have been involved in sex work;
- Capacity building workshops about the experience of domestic violence within 2SLGBTQ+ communities;
- Education to informal support networks about how to recognize domestic violence, respond (based on the situation), and refer to the appropriate supports; and
- We serve as the backbone agency for the Calgary Domestic Violence Collective (CDVC).
