Every Woman's Place for Support, Connections and Community.
We Couldn't Have Done It Without You!
Our community never ceases to amaze us. We reached out to you to support our Toy Room and to make the holidays bright for women and their families in Calgary and you did not disappoint! We had
over 200 volunteers and donors donate their time, talent, and gifts to support
more than 3,500 women and children. We hope you had a wonderful holiday season knowing you had a positive, lasting impact on families in Calgary.

Social Issues Discussion: Women and Addictions | Wednesday, February 1 (6 - 8 pm) Whether we're talking about substance abuse or process addiction, addictions affect millions of individuals and families across Canada. In this workshop, we will discuss the unique challenges women with addictions face in Calgary. We will touch on some of the causes of addiction specifically for women, the stigma behind it, common misconceptions, barriers to treatment and why women are more successful in treatment when given a targeted gender-specific recovery program.
