New: Executive Director Position

(March 11, 2019)

Rowan House currently operates an Emergency Shelter for Women and their children in High River, has programs and services offered throughout the region, and expects to open a second stage shelter in Okotoks for those affected by family violence within 24 months. The critical services we offer are in large part because of the support of communities in our region, our Board of Directors and volunteers, and essential funding from the provincial government and municipalities, and donations from individuals and organizations. Rowan House currently has 34 full and part time team members and is expected to grow as more programs and services are offered.

The ever-pressing need to provide more support to help end family violence in our communities has resulted in significant growth in our organization. We now require an Executive Director who will be responsible for all functions contributing to the achievement of the Society’s vision, mission and strategic goals through a trauma-informed service delivery model.
