Lissa Samantaraya-Shivji's Recent Activity

"The Calgary Women’s Emergency Shelter in Canada’s mission is to support individuals and families in their efforts to live free from family violence and abuse. We offer a range of intervention and prevention programming through our shelter and community-based services to women, children, youth and men living with family violence and abuse. Family violence includes many different forms of abuse, mistreatment or neglect, and has a widespread impact on our community. In a recent survey conducted by the Calgary Women’s Emergency Shelter, 62% of respondents said they had experienced family violence firsthand or knew someone who had. Our programs and services are based in best or promising practices and undergo program evaluation, with a focus on continuous quality improvement. Attached are descriptions of several of our programs, offered in-house (shelter) and in the community. Please also visit our website www.calgarywomensshelter.com for more information about these and other programs we offer."
