About Sagesse 

For more than 30 years, Sagesse has empowered individuals, organizations and communities to disrupt structures of abuse by curating environments to heal and develop skills to lead safe, healthy lives. We work in more than 75 communities across Alberta – either directly providing services or partnering with agencies to help deliver our programs. Our work includes direct service programs, capacity building and education and collective impact: 

  • Peer support groups and mentorship for women who have experienced domestic abuse, are at risk of being abused, or are involved in the intersection of domestic abuse and sex work.
  • Capacity-building workshops about the experience of domestic abuse within 2SLGBTQ+ communities. 
  • Education of informal support networks about how to recognize domestic abuse, respond (based on the situation), and refer to the appropriate supports. 
  • The backbone agency for the Calgary Domestic Violence Collective (CDVC) and IMPACT, a provincial collective impact initiative.  

We see the path to eliminating domestic abuse through engaging in curiosity, fierce conversations and partnerships.
