Sonshine Centre

Second-Stage Shelter in Calgary, AB

The most dangerous time for an abused woman is when she attempts to leave her abuser. Emergency shelters in Calgary offer 21 days of support to women and children – but what is one to do on day 22?   The Sonshine Centre is a residential shelter serving women and children fleeing family violence and abuse. The Centre is an integral part of Calgary’s collaborative response to domestic violence, housing women with and without children who are at a high risk for serious injury or fatality. With 24 units, the Sonshine Centre provides an eighteen-month program that supports clients in navigating the practical and emotional complexities of leaving an abusive home, including six-month follow-up to support clients in their safe transition back into the community.
