YWCA of Calgary
The YWCA of Calgary Steps Up Annual “Walk A Mile In Her Shoes” Fundraiser with Strategy Consulting from Blackbaud
The YWCA of Calgary is dedicated to breaking the cycles of domestic violence, homelessness, and poverty by offering programs and services for women and their families that provide them with the skills, abilities, and opportunities to contribute to and benefit from healthy communities. The organization believes that healthy women and healthy families lead to a thriving community. A vital piece of Calgary’s social and economic fabric, the organization served more than 15,000 vulnerable women, children, and men in 2008. The organization strives for a society where there is no longer a gender gap, and the cycles of domestic violence, homelessness, and poverty have been eradicated.
