Our Impact

With incredible community support, the Women’s Centre continues to make a difference in the lives of women in Calgary.

In 2015, we responded to more than 87,000 contacts from women in Calgary. From employed women who cannot afford bus tickets to get to work; to mothers with small children needing emergency food hampers; to new immigrant women coming to our Practice English groups, we continue to support and connect women through our services.

We are providing basic needs assistance to women more than ever before. We are working to maintain a safe place for women to build community, to receive assistance and to help in return as they are able. And we are facilitating opportunities for women to address the underlying causes of the situations they deal with.
