The Brenda Strafford Society serves women and children impacted by domestic violence. They do this by providing a safe environment and comprehensive support services for women and their families so that they can safely return to the community and independently support their families in a violence free setting.
The Brenda Strafford Society for the Prevention of Domestic Violence was established in January 1996 when it became apparent that there was a dire need in Calgary for longer accommodation for women leaving emergency shelters. They invited the heads of local crisis shelters and other active community members to form an Advisory Committee to suggest solutions to this very serious problem.
We were thrilled to donate 10 laptops to this organization which will be provided to some of their clients to improve their way of living. While speaking with a representative, they said, “We would like to support women and their children in re-building their lives through accessing employment resources and education. With these laptops we will be able to provide women computers to complete their education and become more self-sufficient individuals.”
We travelled out to their location in Calgary and interviewed one of their representatives, Andy Tse. He works as the Fund Development Manager with the organization. Click the link here to find out what he had to say.
