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. We work in more than 65 communities across Alberta – either directly providing service or partnering with agencies help deliver our programs. Our work falls into three categories; direct service; capacity building and education; and collective impact: 

  • Peer support groups and mentorship for women who have experienced domestic violence, are at risk of being abused, or women that have been involved in sex work.
  • Capacity-building workshops to organizations about the experience of domestic violence within 2SLGBTQ+ communities.
  • 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 the Provincial Collective Impact Initiative; collaborative community responses to support individuals, families and societies to live free of domestic violence.

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