Wheatland Crisis society takes great pride in our inclusive practices. Since opening in 1992 we have remained committed to helping everyone who has experienced family abuse. We are one of the few shelters that welcome all individuals experiencing abuse regardless of gender identity or gender expression. This includes, but is not limited to, individuals who identify as male, gender fluid, non-binary or female.
In 2017, the Wheatland Crisis Society was recognized Provincially, with an Alberta Inspiration Award for our inclusive practices. All Wheatland Crisis Society programs are accessible to men, women and anyone within the LGBTQ+ community. In addition, the Male Domestic Abuse Outreach Program is offered through the Calgary Counselling Centre to provide longer term counselling, advocacy and support. The program includes individual and group services.
