Making Changes Association
We love 'em!
Making Changes Employment Association of Alberta, also known as Making Changes Association, is a vibrant organization that provides relevant programs, services and resources to empower women in transition. Our goal is to help women build confidence and skills so that they can participate more fully in the community. Making Changes Association assists over 2000 women and teenage girls each year to build a better future for themselves and their families.
We proudly fulfill our mission of empowering women in transition by providing:
• Focused programs for women in transition to enable them to enter the workforce and become self-sufficient
• Valuable pre-employment training for immigrant women
• No-cost new and gently used business clothing for unemployed and underemployed women with financial barriers.
• Fashionable and functional clothing for teenage girls to meet their school and recreational needs
Making Changes Association was incorporated as a not for profit society in 1996, however, a rich history of programs aimed at women in transition dates back as far as 1981. Our strength lies in our rootedness in community and in building collaborative partnerships that create a more inclusive range of opportunities for women in transition.
Our achievements are directly related to committed and talented volunteers and staff members, donors and community partners. In developing new ways to deepen the impact of our services, we also seek ways to identify and address the emerging needs of women in transition and collaborate with other stakeholders to address those needs.
