Mission: The Elizabeth Fry Society of Calgary offers pathways to healing, through supports and advocacy, for women and marginalized populations who are affected by systemic social issues which can contribute to criminalization.

The Youth Mentorship and Legal Advocacy Program provides support to youth with criminal matters with legal information and assistance to address individual issues before, during and post sentencing. Youth and their caregivers are provided with assistance to support the youth in getting through their court appearances and post sentencing to complete their court orders. Mentors provide long term supports and mentorship throughout the time the youth is involved with the criminal justice system. Youth gain from positive relationships with role models who engage them in positive activities and connect them more significantly into the community. Indigenous Youth engage in cultural programming and with Elders to strengthen their cultural identity and increase their sense of belonging.
