Resolve supports multiple community initiatives on an annual basis through partnerships, 3rd party fundraising, and volunteerism. We believe that our professional standing gives us a unique opportunity to give back to our community. What we have discovered, however, is that we seem to gain as much from our community as we give! Some of our community partners include:
- Calgary Counselling Centre;
- Avery’s Legacy
- Big Hill Haven;
- Cochrane Boys and Girls Club;
- Volunteer Lawyers’ Service;
- Calgary Legal Guidance;
- Student Legal Assistance;
- Calgary Youth Justice Society;
- Reforming the Family Justice Committee; and
- Peer Support Groups, among other great initiatives!
The purpose of our primary annual fundraiser is to raise money for domestic violence programs for the benefit of Southern Albertans. Every year, during domestic violence awareness month, November, we bring speakers to provide workshops and training on a topic related to domestic violence and high conflict issues. These workshops are always geared towards an audience of judges, lawyers, psychologists, mental health professionals, social workers, medical professionals, first responders, law enforcement, shelter workers, outreach workers, educators, parents in high conflict situations, and anyone else with an interest in family law or domestic violence issues!
