Without you, They have no one.

YOU CAN HELP SAVE LIVES.

It is a little known fact that Alberta has one of the highest rates of domestic violence in the country. What is even more alarming is that a total of 25% of homicides in Calgary are domestic in nature.

It is time to take action. Coordinated action.

HomeFront brings together specialists from law enforcement, justice, health, community and treatment agencies to offer a sustainable systemic solution to freeing families from domestic violence. Over the years, HomeFront has helped more than 26,000 victims create safer homes for themselves and their children.

Together with our partners, HomeFront is working towards a common vision to significantly reduce the incidence and repeat nature of domestic violence in Calgary. With your help, we can make this vision a reality.

"THE NUMBER ONE PARTNERSHIP WE HAVE IS BETWEEN OUR DOMESTIC CONFLICT UNIT AND HOMEFRONT. THEY ARE OUR HOMICIDE PREVENTION UNIT. THEIR INTERVENTION SAVES LIVES, IT SAVES FAMILIES, IT SAVES PEOPLE."

– CALGARY CHIEF OF POLICE RICK HANSON

YOU CAN HELP PUT LIVES BACK TOGETHER.

HomeFront's Domestic Conflict Response Team intervenes with Calgary Police Service in homes where abuse is taking place to interrupt the cycle of abuse at its earliest phase. Domestic Conflict Response Team is our first-line of defence. To date, this program has helped over 3,616 men, women and children.

Our five year goal to raise $6.5 million to support Domestic Conflict Response Team will help an additional 15,167 individuals make healthier choices.

"HOMEFRONT IS MEASURABLY MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN IN THIS COMMUNITY BY REDUCING THESE FAMILIES’ VULNERABILITY TO VIOLENCE."

– CALGARY COUNSELLING CENTRE CEO ROBBIE BABINS-WAGNER

YOU CAN KEEP VICTIMS SAFE AND HOLD OFFENDERS ACCOUNTABLE.

HomeFront's unique, research-validated model has reduced the rate of violent domestic re-offences in Calgary by 66%.

Our Specialized Domestic Violence Court Program has provided safety planning and support to more than 15,000 victims throughout the judicial process, and has sent more than 8,600 offenders through specialized treatment.

Our five year goal to raise $4.1 million to support Specialized Domestic Violence Court Program will serve an additional 7,500 victims and further reduce the rate of violent re-offences.

"HOMEFRONT IS A TREMENDOUS COLLABORATIVE EFFORT BY DEDICATED AGENCIES IN THE CALGARY AREA THAT IS DELIVERING OUTSTANDING RESULTS."

– HONOURABLE JUDGE JAMES OGLE

YOU CAN BREAK THE CYCLE OF VIOLENCE.

Picking up where other victim services end, HomeFront’s Partner Support Program and High Risk Management Initiative have kept more than 5,350 victims of domestic violence safe throughout the term of their abuser’s probation.

Our five year goal to raise $3.5 million to support our Partner Support Program and High Risk Management Initiative will help an additional 5,000 victims and their children break the cycle of violence.

"HOMEFRONT IS THE MODEL THAT PEOPLE NEED TO LOOK AT. WE HAVE GONE THROUGH A NUMBER OF YEARS OF CHANGE…AND THE HOMEFRONT MODEL IS THE MODEL THAT IS WORKING."

– CHIEF PROBATION OFFICER SHAWNE YOUNG

ALL WE NEED IS YOU.

HomeFront's goal to raise a total of $14.1 million over five years allows our frontline experts from the Domestic Conflict Response Team, Specialized Domestic Court Program, Partner Support Program and High Risk Management Initiative to assist in transforming the lives of 27,667 individuals currently without HomeFront’s protection and assistance.

Domestic homicide is an all too common form of violence. In 2009, the cost of a single domestic violence homicide response was $1.7 million. Based on our five year goal to serve an additional 27,667 individuals, the cost for HomeFront’s intervention and protection services is just slightly more than $510 per individual.

With your help, over the next five years HomeFront can achieve our goals by getting to the root of the issue through expansion of our intervention and prevention services. Without your support, HomeFront will not be able to address the need or deliver the level of service excellence our citizens and community deserve.

HomeFront saves lives by keeping families safe and communities healthy. Through leading community action, we can significantly reduce the incidence and repeat nature of domestic violence in Calgary. All we need is you.
