For thirty years, the Tree of Hope has stood at Sherwood Park Mall as a symbol of the power of giving.

TREE OF HOPE 2023: A Safe Place Tree of Hope Campaign is at the Sherwood Park Mall again in 2023! We are looking for responsible, mature volunteers to help out at our fundraising booth.  Please review the available volunteer slots (November 18 – December 23) and sign-up here: A Safe Place (Strathcona Shelter Society Ltd.): Tree of Hope 2022 (


2022 marked our 30th anniversary of the Tree of Hope. We had an outpouring of support from the community and we are so grateful to everyone who helped with this campaign. We are always hoping to build on our successes, and have set a goal for 2023 of $30,000 raised. This money goes directly towards A Safe Place being able to support those in our community who are reclaiming their lives, free of domestic abuse and intimate partner violence.

Your donation supports your community. These individuals and families may be your neighbours, your coworkers, even your family members, who are looking to break free from the cycle of domestic abuse. Please donate today.

From all of us here at A Safe Place, we want to say thank you to the businesses that support us wholeheartedly, as well to our volunteers. We couldn’t take on this campaign without your continued support! Thank you for taking time out of your schedules to help others. Also, thank you to our donors. Your generosity is amazing. The support you gave us will allow A Safe Place to offer the best kinds of services for our clients. The efforts made by everyone involved are so appreciated. Your team makes our dream work.
