About THE ELIZABETH FRY SOCIETY OF CALGARY
Through our several different programs, the Elizabeth Fry Society of Calgary provides a large variety of services to the women and men in Calgary and area who are in conflict with the law. We focus many of our services specifically on women, as we recognize that women find themselves in conflict with the law for very different reasons than men and that a very different approach to care and counselling is effective for women than that used for men. Our programs are offered via workshops, legal clinics, legal information and direction at the court house, one-on-one support with legal applications, one-on-one support visits at female incarceration units and post-release individual and group healing programs. On a larger scale we are a part of a national advocacy group that stands for the rights of women in conflict with the law everywhere.
