Yes. Violence against men is a serious issue in our community, and it is important for men to know that there are resources available to them.
Men who are experiencing domestic violence (including psychological, verbal, physical, financial and spiritual abuse) can speak with our trained counselors by calling 1-888-346-5643 24 hours a day/7 days a week. All calls are confidential.
How much of the money you raise goes to women and children affected by family violence?
Our administrative costs are less than 10% of total expenditures. That means 90 cents out of every dollar goes directly to fund programs for families affected by domestic violence. Administrative costs include heating the shelter, maintaining our state-of-the-art security system and ensuring that we employ people who are experts in their field of domestic violence. Without these costs, we would not be able to provide the high level of care we are so proud of.
The Central Alberta Women’s Emergency Shelter strives to maintain the highest level of accountability, transparency and effectiveness in all our efforts. We welcome inquiries concerning our financial policies and expenditure profile. You can view our annual report and audited financial summary here.
