While Rowan House works to provide Domestic Violence preventative education and awareness all year long, we are raising the volume on this work for the month of November.
Alberta’s Family Violence Prevention Month began in 1986 as a local initiative in the Town of Hinton. Since then it has grown and is recognized by agencies all across the province, including Rowan House for the Foothills.
For several years now, we have been adorning street signs, lamp posts and benches throughout the downtown streets of High River and Okotoks with purple ribbons and stat cards to intrigue and educate passersby.
Last year we encouraged the community to be a little more active in their support by launching our purple shoelace campaign where you could pick up free purple laces to put in your shoes, take pictures and share them on social media using the hashtag: #LaceUpForRowanHouse.
