Visit our Information page to find all of the resources available to help women leave their abuser.
We are women in Airdrie who are passionate about providing a safe haven for women and children fleeing domestic violence.
Between October 2014 and October 2015, there were 967 domestic violence calls to the RCMP in Airdrie and the surrounding communities. Without a women's shelter in Airdrie, women and children fleeing abusive environments have to go to either Calgary or Strathmore right now. With domestic violence rates rising rapidly over the last couple of years (Calgary Police Service receives an average of 19,000 calls a year), these shelters are often running at capacity and there can be wait times for spots. Lack of space in existing shelters is one contributing factor as to why women are unable to break free from their abuser.
There is Hope...
Airdrie P.O.W.E.R. (Protecting Our Women with Emergency Resources) is a non-profit organization that seeks to provide women in Airdrie and District with the means to leave an abusive environment through emergency resources, education and empowerment, thus creating a safe and sustainable community. Our ultimate mission is to establish a women's shelter in Airdrie where women will have a safe place to stay for up to 21 days while having the resources and support to plan out their next steps.
Together, we can provide the support and shelter women need; today and tomorrow!
We are grateful for the support of our community partners!
