ACWS’s mission to end violence against women is the foundation of our four charitable objectives, designed to:
- Develop a coordinated, collaborative response to family violence that is comprehensive and responsive.
- Initiate, conduct, and/or participate in research relating to the causes, impacts, and prevention of family violence, and elimination of violence against women, children, and seniors, such as the ACWS annual Data Release and Inventory of Promising Practices in Alberta.
- Educate and train the public and professionals about prevention of, and responses to, intimate partner and elder abuse through initiatives such as Leading Change.
- Coordinate funding and improve services in order to better meet the needs of abused women, their children, and abused seniors.
