First used in 2016 after the devastating Fort McMurray wild fires, Text4Hope was found to be effective at reducing anxiety by 25% when the lives of more than 88,000 Albertans were uprooted.

As the impact of COVID-19 continues to soar, there’s no time to lose in supporting this invaluable service. Please donate now to make an immediate impact for Albertans in crisis.
