What is the Outreach Centre?
The Outreach Centre is home to Central Alberta Women’s Outreach Society and Suicide Information and Education Services. The two agencies co-located in 2012 to our current facility. Together we serve Central Alberta under the same Board of Directors; have created operational efficiencies and shared resources.
The Central Alberta Women’s Outreach Society (CAWOS) opened its doors in 1984 as an agency devoted to supporting women affected by family violence, help meet their basic needs, and find solutions to creating a safer, healthier and more secure life for themselves and their families.
Over the past years the organization has effectively adapted and increased programming to meet increasingly complex issues within communities and the people we serve. Our programs have evolved providing many services to women, men, and children who are affected by domestic violence, homelessness, and the effects of poverty.
What do we do?
It is our goal that all Albertans have the opportunity to reach their potential and benefit from the highest possible quality of life, while addressing needs, contributing to a healthier, more resilient, and safer life and community.
All of the programs and services are designed to assist adults and children to learn more effective coping skills and options for making positive changes in their lives.
