Biographical history

The Calgary Women's Emergency Shelter opened in Calgary, Alberta in 1972 under the name "Oasis" as a service providing temporary accommodation for women and families in crisis situations. A board of directors was formed and the shelter was established as a permanent service due to the positive response. The name was changed to CWES. The shelter provides temporary shelter and food, counselling and referral to other supportive social agencies. Concerns of the shelter have been fund raising in order to provide free services, and expand facilities.
