We're a charitable organization that's been serving the St Albert, Sturgeon County, and surrounding communities for over 30 years. We work with families and individuals to address the impacts of domestic abuse and violence and provide education to prevent abuse and bullying in our communities.


Our Board works in a governance & policy capacity, providing fiduciary oversight to the organization and manages the Executive Director.

Some of these committees can have external (to the Board) members who may serve for 1, 2, or 3 year terms. 


We're seeking interested members of the community to serve on a number of our Board committees. Volunteers are critical to the success of our organization and we value the many community members who have stepped up to serve on our Board or on our committees at one time or another. If you've served with us before or are looking to get involved, we'd love to have you apply!
