Our History

 

Led by the passion and vision of a small team, Riseup Society was established in 2007 to help support women affected by domestic abuse in the greater Leduc community.  Beginning with a handful of counselling sessions and a small support group in a home office, the initiative grew quickly as the true scope of the need presented itself.

In 2009, Riseup Society relocated to a small heritage home located conveniently off of main street in Leduc.  This humble yellow home provided a place of safety, compassion, and courage for hundreds of women who lives have been affected by domestic violence.

In 2015 we moved once again.  We are now located behind Cottage Computers off 50th Street where we continue to provide individual counselling and a variety of innovative support groups.

Each year we continue to see clients from all walks of life come to Riseup to learn about domestic violence and abuse and we continue to be grateful for the support of our community.
