Turning Points, Unmasking Family Violence and Abuse, will celebrate individuals and families in our city striving to live free from violence and abuse. The gala will unmask the myths, stereotypes and stigmas to reveal the true picture of this issue, as well as bring awareness to the important work of our agency in the community.


Some of our incredible live auction items include:

-A private fully equipped Calgary Flames box for a hockey game of your choice in the 2017-2018 season. Invite your family and friends and enjoy food and refreshments in your own box while cheering for the Calgary Flames. Generously donated by Qualico.


-A 7-night stay at Seven Stars Grace Bay Resort in the beautiful Turks & Caicos. This resort is set on a white sand beach dotted with palm trees. This ocean front suite sleeps up to six people. Generously donated by Shelly and Alan Norris.

-A relaxing week at Grand Luxxe Villa in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico. Guests will be able to enjoy top of the line accommodations, fine dining and activities for the whole family to enjoy. This package includes $1,000 cash for airfare. Generously donated by Gary Nissen.


Show your support for those impacted by violence and abuse and join us at the Turning Points Gala on April 27th. Your contribution will make a difference in the lives of many individuals and families.

Client Testimonials

My time at the Shelter kept me from harm. It also gave me the hope I thought I had lost. 

~ Jan

It’s still amazing to me that such a simple step as one phone call could so dramatically change a person’s life.

~ Catherine

After 50 years of marriage I didn’t want to leave him, but now I know how to keep myself safe in my own home.


It felt great to break the silence. I told my counsellor things about my marriage that I have never told anyone because I felt so ashamed.

~ Sierra
