About Sagesse

For more than 30 years, Sagesse has empowered individuals, organizations and communities to break the cycle of violence by curating environments to heal and develop skills to lead safe, healthy lives.

  • Education to informal support networks about how to recognize domestic violence, respond (based on the situation), and refer to the appropriate supports.
  • The backbone agency for the Calgary Domestic Violence Collective (CDVC) and a provincial collective impact initiative.

Our philosophy is to engage in curious, fierce conversations and collaborations and we see this as a path to ending domestic violence.
