Alberta Council of Women’s Shelters (ACWS)
If you or someone you know is in immediate danger, call 911.
Together, ACWS and our members work to end domestic violence—in our homes and throughout our communities.
A registered charity, ACWS is the provincial network organization of women’s shelters in Alberta. ACWS supports 41 members operating over 50 shelters across the province for women, children, and seniors facing domestic abuse. We support our members and work with them to end domestic violence through culture-shifting violence prevention programs, collective data and research, and front-line training. With support from ACWS, Alberta shelters are helping to provide safety, support families, and improve communities.
