Help Change the Picture

For many children, stress is hard to verbalize so they will give you a “picture” that tells you everything is fine. However, given the opportunity to express themselves in a safe environment often reveals a different “picture”.

When families are in crisis and parents have nowhere to turn, the Children's Cottage Crisis Nursery, offers a 24/7, 365 day safe haven where children can take a break from stressful situations, and are given nurturing care while their parents receive the help they need. 

With your financial support, we can “Change the Picture” for the children we serve, and build a community of Safe Children in Healthy Families. Click here to donate now.

 Rotary Sarcee’s 18th annual Art from the Heart was a smashing success thanks to all our donors, artists, sponsors and the wonderful ladies at Figure 8 who put the event on in support of us and our little ones! Though totals are still being tallied, we do know the funds donated will go far at our facilities like the Crisis Nursery — a 14-bed, 24-hour crisis childcare facility that helps families in times of crisis.

Every piece of art sold, every balloon popped and every silent auction item won will help Calgary’s children stay safe and stay in healthy families. Thank you Calgary for your continued support of our community’s most vulnerable.
