Our Vision: "No one experiencing family violence shall be turned away from a shelter or be forced to return to a dangerous or abusive lifestyle."
Mission Statement: "The Camrose Women's Shelter is a non-profit organization which exists to assist individuals and families experiencing the effects of family violence to work towards a lifestyle free of abuse."
Camrose Women's Shelter Society operates a 22 bed emergency shelter providing a safe, supportive environment for women and children who are escaping domestic violence, in a crisis situation, or who may be homeless. An average of 400 women and children from Camrose and surrounding communities seek refuge at the shelter each year.
The Shelter is wheelchair accessible, and beyond provision of basic needs (food, clothing, shelter), it offers a 24 hour Crisis Line, Family Support and Childcare programs, supportive counseling, referrals, safety planning, information on domestic violence, life skills groups, and an on-site school for grades 1-12. Women and children are supported in reaching personal goals and connected with other community organizations through Outreach programs as they transition away from the shelter towards safe housing and community supports. Outreach is also provided for women who do not want to access in-house services.
