30 years of WINS in Calgary

For three decades, Women in Need Society (WINS) has been committed to helping people in need while supporting efforts to protect our environment.

Past Impact Reports


As we reflect back on the past year, we would like to express our deepest gratitude to our team who work tirelessly on the front lines, and to our donors for supporting our programs and essential services.


As the needs of Calgarians have changed due to COVID-19, we have pivoted and adapted our programming and services to match. We opened our sixth thrift store in Beltline, our new Head Office and Programs Centre.


Throughout 2019, we continued to support women and their families in
Calgary through our core services. We also celebrated the launch of our new signature program, Retail Ready by WINS. 

Audited Financial Statements

Every year, WINS invests revenues earned from our social enterprises and fundraising initiatives back to our community programs that help women and their families thrive.

Current and past audited financial statements are available upon request. Contact us today.

 "I was having a wonderful time speaking to the program facilitator, which helped me feel like I have people I can turn to whenever I need help. Thank you for putting smiles on the faces of so many immigrant mothers."



"Thanks to House to Home Program, I was able to build a home for my children. The support was amazing. It made living in a different city more comfortable. Everyone was so supportive, so comforting, and non-judgmental. I felt accepted."

"The moment I started the Retail Ready Program, I was inspired to keep going until I completed it. And when I did, I felt empowered. I've never felt so confident in preparing my own resume and cover letter."
