A Year of Second Chances – 2016 Annual Report
July 25, 2017
Through the tough economy of last year, the Elizabeth Fry Society of Calgary persevered thanks to the strength of the individuals, funders, volunteers, partnerships, staff, management team and Board of Directors.
Our 2016 annual report is about second chances, and that is what our work is all about. Giving women a second chance heals families and communities, and reduces the financial burden of incarceration. The theme of second chances is represented in the report through the common and humble dandelion – a symbol of resiliency that survives and thrives through the toughest conditions, symbolizing the ability to rise above challenges.
We celebrate the stories and success of the women and families we serve, and know that the community of care and support makes a difference in healing, and creating new beginnings through second chances. Thank you for your support.
