Women's Centre of Calgary
We love 'em!
The Women’s Centre is open to all women. We made over 100,000 direct contacts with women in the city last year, and many of the women who access our services are living in poverty.
Programming exists in three primary areas; Get Assistance, Connect with Others, and Work for Change.
Get Assistance - The Women’s Centre assists women to meet their own and their family’s basic needs by providing emergency food, personal care items, referrals for clothing and furniture, access to technology, and Legal Advice Clinics.
Connect with Others - The Women’s Centre recognizes that social inclusion helps maintain healthy citizens, families and communities in society. The Centre provides space and opportunities (via workshops and gatherings) for women to support each other and develop a sense of belonging and community.
Work for Change - The Women’s Centre not only works towards meeting the individual needs of women in Calgary, it also takes proactive steps to ensure women’s voices are present in the dialogue around various social, political and economic issues.
