About Us

We’re on a mission to build lasting solutions with individuals, families, and communities that end domestic abuse.

In 1981, a group of concerned citizens from Sherwood Park, Fort Saskatchewan, and rural areas of Strathcona County met to understand family violence and its impact on our region. They quickly learned the depth of the problem and mobilized quickly. In July of 1982, we incorporated as the Strathcona Shelter Society Ltd. and, just two years later, opened the doors to A Safe Place. Since our opening, our shelter has supported more than 25,000 women and children.
