reducing barriers to health and social services resulting in improved health outcomes for women in the program and the infants born to them

About the women’s program

The Women’s Program offers safe, low barrier services to pregnant and childbearing aged women in Red Deer who are experiencing vulnerability due to place or circumstance. The program uses a harm reduction approach that focuses on meeting women and their families where they are at today. For clients that may have disengaged with or been removed from programming or service provision at other agencies, our Women’s Program staff work alongside them, creating a safe first step to reengage with health and social supports and services.
