Who we are

The Pincher Creek Women’s Emergency Shelter Association is a non-profit organization that provides a safe place for women and children who are experiencing family violence and/or crisis situations. There are three programs available: Residential, Outreach and a Child Support program. Our crisis line is available 24/7 for women and children in need (1-888-354-4868). Our Residential program assists women and children with the basic necessities while they are in shelter. To enter our Residential program please call our hotline. An Intake worker for the Outreach program is available during business hours (403-627-2114) for all inquiries related to Outreach.

Through all of our programs we advocate on behalf of our clients when needed as well as provide education on family violence and safety in a non-judgmental and inclusive manner.

Our Mission

The Pincher Creek Women’s Emergency Shelter Association will, in collaboration with other agencies,  provide free safe shelter and support services for women and children who are fleeing from domestic violence. 

Our Vision

Our vision is for all people in Southwestern Alberta to be safe in their homes and safe in their communities.
