Our Flooded Office: In Photos

As you may have heard, our office has been closed for the past few weeks due to some flooding caused by burst pipes in our building on May 12. Its been quite an ordeal to get the extensive repairs underway. But our incredible staff have continued working all through this mess - their level of dedication and passion is a constant inspiration!
We expect the repairs to be completed in time for us to re-open the office by June 10th. We will post any updates if this timeline changes down the road.
In the meantime, our many programs and services will continue. Our staff are still out serving the community through our outreach and education programs. And we will continue to welcome counselling clients by appointment. (Please no walk-ins at this time - but call us at 403-283-5580 or email at to connect with a counsellor. We will be checking messages regularly and will get back to you shortly.)
Thank you to those of you who have offered to donate furniture items and other equipment. We are unable to accept items of that nature at this time. The best way to support us remains your kind financial donations. You can find info on how to donate to us on our website.
These photos by Nancy Miller show a glimpse into the clean up that is ahead of us. It is a daunting challenge, but we've faced a few challenges in our 40+ years! ;) This one won't hold us back.

Can you spot the fan?
And more fans...
Our resource centre gets some attention too.
Ah ha, this is where all the stuff is hiding!
