Support Our Work
During this COVID19 crisis we are asking for support, so we can continue to provide direct assistance to women and their families.

The Women's Centre of Calgary provides assistance, support and connection for thousands of women in our community each year. We are asking for support to continue to provide direct assistance to women. We also need help with our technology efforts so we can continue to provide community connection for women who are isolated. 

If you are able to donate please visit our website for details. Thank you for your generosity during this difficult time.
