About SACE

The Sexual Assault Centre of Edmonton (SACE) exists:

to empower individuals affected by sexual abuse and assault, and

to empower communities to take action against sexual violence.

In 1975, a national report identified Edmonton as the "Sexual Assault Capital of Canada." This prompted Edmontonians concerned about the sexual violence in our community and the lack of services available to survivors of this violence to come together. In 1976, when the Sexual Assault Centre of Edmonton first opened, a part-time coordinator and a number of dedicated volunteers provided a crisis line. From there we have continued to grow.

The Sexual Assault Centre provides the following free services:

1) public education;

2) 24-hour crisis line;

3) crisis intervention;

4) short-term and group counselling; and

5) diversity outreach program.

All services of the Sexual Assault Centre of Edmonton are provided within our belief structure.

If you are considering becoming a volunteer please see our volunteering section.

To learn more about whats going on at SACE see our events section, and be sure to take a look at our Annual General Meeting Report.

If you have any questions, please feel free to Contact Us

Hi dears :hi:

I'm new here and posted in WELCOME first

Now I'd like to know if anyone has informations about a support group in Calgary ?

I'm gonna move there soon and need this support asap :friends2::bighug:

I'm leaving my country because it became unbearable to live here, it's like faing up my abusers all time long, I'm not able anymore :drool::zip::nonono::ohmy::bye:

it makes me feel so sick and my life is a burden I can't carry anymore

So I need a change, a LOOOOONNNNG distance between them (my family and its denial :no2::nonono: ) and me :tear:

I thought nobody would understand how hard it is for me to stay here, but since I started to talk my truth I think a different way

There might be some people to understand that staying here means "DYING" :(

So if you have any informations about a group of survivors of incest and sexual assaults in Calgary; please tell me

I went on the website mentioned above here, but didn't get any answer to my email yet

I'm leaving next may and time flies ... I must say that I'm getting stressed :sneeze: not having any contact there already

Hope you can help

:ThankYou:
