About RESET Society of Calgary:

Founded in 1989, RESET Society of Calgary (formerly known as Servants Anonymous Society of Calgary) helps women and children who are victims of sexual exploitation and/or sex trafficking. RESET reports that more than 90% of trafficking victims within Canada come from Canada. The most common recruitment age for sex trafficking is 13 to 14 years.

RESET Calgary’s program includes two-stage housing (supported housing and supportive independent housing), life skills, trauma-informed counselling, educational scholarships, employment skills, and community support components. In F2018, RESET Calgary provided 7,944 safe nights to women and children. Of these women, 91% were homeless at intake, 96% had issues with addiction, 42% were pregnant or mothers, and 21% identify as First Nations.

In F2018, RESET Society of Calgary moved to a new location at Fisher Park, Calgary. It also purchased new houses in southern communities in Calgary to bring essential services and classrooms closer to participants. This reduces their need to travel through higher risk areas of the city.
