A safe tomorrow

starts today. 

Since 2016, Big Hill Haven has been working in Cochrane & the surrounding area supporting families impacted by domestic abuse. All women are welcome here. Just know that we are here to help you. That we are committed to ending the cycle of abuse and violence by raising awareness through prevention, intervention, and education.

Our Response to Covid-19

We wish to assure the families in our community that we are still here to provide resources, support, and emergency shelter as required. We continue to monitor and follow the recommendations and directions provided by Alberta Health Services and all levels of government. With  Calgary and surrounding areas classified as being in a State of Emergency, it is important for you to know Cochrane's Big Hill Haven is here to help.

Here to help.


 Our service approach was designed to meet the needs of women and their children who live in rural Alberta.  Currently, Big Hill Haven provides emergency housing, community outreach, and case management programs. Over the past year, Big Hill Haven has been able to help 62 clients, provide 82 nights of shelter and enabled 244 peer support hours.

Support our mission.

Big Hill Haven is made possible through the support of government funding and community donations. Your donation will help us continue our mission and help ensure people experiencing domestic violence are given the best opportunity to move towards a safe and healthy future.
