Rowan House Emergency Shelter is a short-term women’s emergency shelter located in the Foothills of Southern Alberta. Our mission is to provide crisis intervention, long-term support and education for those affected by family violence in rural communities. In doing so, Rowan House works to fulfill its vision: that every person is safe and secure, and lives without abuse.
We provide women and their children a safe environment that nourishes feelings of self-worth, lends an opportunity for healing and personal growth, while facilitating transition back into the community – all at no cost to them.
We also provide Outreach services to women and children who have experienced abuse or are at risk of experiencing abuse and Preventative Education for schools and community groups.
