Our programs help women break the cycle of poverty and start again. Crimes of poverty are common for the majority of women we serve and about 80 percent of our clients are mothers. To help them find another chance to rebuild their lives, they need practical help and access to community resources.
The Elizabeth Fry Society of Calgary provides unique programs to women transitioning from prison to the community, as well as offers resources to women and youth involved in the justice system and courts. Another key focus for us is to support immigrant women by educating them on their rights, as well as helping them navigate the complex immigration process.
