Alberta Council of Women’s Shelter: Invitation

June 7, 2016

The convergence of current and critical factors – new provincial government, new community services identified for recent immigrant and refugee populations, leadership and staff turnover in our community agencies, and recent grant and funding allocations and service changes to shelters in the GEA (WIN HOUSE, LaSalle, Lurana Shelter, WINGS and A Safe Place)– make ripe the time to convene with you for a day of conversation to:

  • renew our working relationships,
  • review how recent funding is informing and shaping our services, and
  • identify and clarify your questions and issues.

We invite you, with one of your colleagues, to join us on:
