Magdalene House Society announced Board of Director resolved to dissolve and liquidate the organization effective December 31, 2020.
It is with deep regret that we inform all our supporters of this decision. While we were able to maintain the Society for a short term by volunteer support, it was not sustainable in the long run. Although we applied for many grants, our organization was unsuccessful in achieving long term support.
During the operation, we were able to assist ten women who were seeking support in their recovery from Human Trafficking and referred many others to services in Calgary and Edmonton. Through many presentations we were able to make people aware of the scourge of human trafficking in its many forms.
We want to thank the many supporters we have had over the ten years of operation; those who financially supported us, purchased Fair Trade goods, and participated in our fundraisers. We are so appreciative of the people who have worked for us, in the house that we maintained, and in the office. We are especially thankful for the work of our Executive Director who worked tirelessly over the last number of years.
