COVID-19 and the Brenda Strafford Centre
The Brenda Strafford Centre continues to be fully operational during the COVID-19 pandemic. We continue to provide safe and secure housing and comprehensive services such as trauma-informed counselling, basic need support and much more for adults and families at risk who have experienced family violence. If you are experiencing family violence please call the 24 hour Family Violence Helpline (403) 234-SAFE (7233) , if this is an emergency situation please call 911.
We Could Not Do It Without You!
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic we have been generously supported by our donor community and partner agencies such as Soap For Hope, Leftovers Foundation, various restaurants in the community, and the YYC Heroes Project who have donated cloth masks for clients and staff. These agencies along with our community of individual donors and businesses have helped ensure our clients have access to basic needs items and a variety of pantry items and meals.
We also want to thank and acknowledge everyone who contributed to the Lost & Found Campaign and helped exceed our goal of $20,000! Special thanks to Circle K and Quarry Park Chiropractic for their generous corporate donations. These crucial funds have helped support the diverse needs of families during the pandemic and will continue to help address anticipated future needs.
