Lend a hand


Two weeks later, some of Calgary's neighbourhoods have begun the process of cleaning their homes and mending their communities, but in many areas in and around the region the need for help persists, and will continue to for some time. Please, lend a hand.

Supporting women and children in crisis, both the Calary Women's Emergency Shelter and the YWCA of Calgary's emergency shelter, supportive housing and head offices were within the evacuation zones. Says the CWES, "our clients have experienced two simultaneous evacuations: first, they fled violence and now flooding." Relief is needed to effectively support the day-to-day needs of victims of family violence.

Many organizations are providing immediate flood relief to Albertans, helping to ensure the day-to-day needs are being met, however there will be a long road to recovery for many neighbourhoods and communities. These are organizations working to help the short and long-term needs of the community.

In addition to damage in Calgary, Canmore, High River and elsewhere in the region, the Siksika Nation and Stoney Nakoda Nation have suffered considerable damage.
