In 2020, the Dashmesh Culture Centre acquired 198, 202 & 206 Saddleback Road NE from the City of Calgary, to provide transitional housing to vulnerable women and children.
In partnership with our community, we would like to empower and support women and children to move beyond violence and abuse through the safety of transitional housing, education, and outreach services. We believe it is everyone’s human right to live without fear of physical or emotional abuse. Women in our society, when relieved from the pressure of an abusive home environment, and given the opportunity and encouragement, can develop their full potential to live a full and rich life. This project will provide a safe and secure refuge for women and their children.
Our proposed Women’s transitional housing project is designed to provide them the comforts of home and allow them to access to resources to help them have successful and safe futures for themselves and their children. Residential units will be designed for short and long-term accommodations.
