Strong Like a Woman

Women making the courageous decision to leave an abusive relationship and start rebuilding their lives truly embodies what it means to be Strong Like a Woman.

November is Family Violence Prevention Month in Alberta. From November 1 to November 30, 2021, the Brenda Strafford Centre, Discovery House and Sonshine Community Services are joining together for the ‘Strong Like a Woman’ campaign.

Local fitness studios will host one or more classes throughout November, with the cost of the class benefitting the shelters! The ‘Strong Like a Woman’ campaign will build awareness of the mission of these three long-term shelters and facilitate their work on ending domestic violence in our communities.

Are you a fitness/yoga studio interested in participating in the Strong Like a Woman campaign?

We are grateful for your interest! For more information, email us at

Partners and classes to check out this November: coming soon!
