Keep The Light Shining!

The Brenda Strafford Society for the Prevention of Domestic Violence – operating the Brenda Strafford Centre, is pleased to be celebrating 25 years of serving the community! The Brenda Strafford Centre was established in January 1996 when it became apparent that there was a dire need in Calgary for long term accommodation and substantial supports for women and children exiting emergency shelters. In cooperation with Calgary Housing Company, The Brenda Strafford Centre opened its doors to families who flee domestic violence. Throughout its history, the Centre has evolved to be one of the largest post-emergency shelters in the country. The Centre is named for Brenda Strafford, late wife of Dr. Barrie Strafford, Founder of The Brenda Strafford Foundation Ltd.

To commemorate this milestone, and to look forward to the next 25 years with big plans in mind, we are trying to raise $25,000! Be a part of history while also laying out the framework for a bigger and brighter future for women and children by donating to our 25th Anniversary campaign!
