Discovery House Family Violence Prevention Society
We love 'em!
Alberta currently has the second highest rate of domestic violence in Canada. In 2011, the Calgary Police Service received over 16,000 calls related to domestic violence. Every dollar donated to Discovery House goes toward helping women and children in need, and ending family violence in Calgary's communities.
Here are just a few ways your donation can help:
$25 = One hour of security for residential clients.
$60 = One hour of counseling for an adult client.
$100 = One hour of art and play counseling for a child.
$250 = Eight weeks of nutritious snacks for children.
$500 = Five weeks of life skills education for one client.
$1000 = A crib, bedding, towels and kitchen supplies for one apartment.
