Donate to CAWES You can make a difference in the life of someone affected by domestic violence

Whatever your means or preference, there are many ways for you to make a difference in the lives of the women and children CAWES serves. With your support, The Central Alberta Women’s Emergency Shelter has become recognized as one of the best in Canada.  This year CAWES is doubling up on its efforts to augment trauma informed care at the Shelter and its innovative Children's Healing Centre.

CAWES is grateful for all of the caring and compassionate people that support our work. Without the resources you provide, we would simply not be able to deliver the much needed superior care, support and safe housing that women and children fleeing abuse and violence must have access to. Your contribution of time, talent and treasure has an important and critical impact in our effort to end family violence in Central Alberta and beyond. We invite you to provide hope to our vulnerable women and their children through a variety of giving options.
