Life is unexpected. Carya is here.

Life is unexpected, and sometimes, it takes a sudden turn that we never saw coming.

For some, this may mean grieving the loss of someone they loved. For others, it may be navigating the unexpected obstacles of aging, or the endless stressors of inflation. Even welcoming a new child can lead to unexpected moments of isolation.

For Rachel, finding herself isolated and depressed, in a situation she could have never imagined was completely unexpected. But thanks to the support of Carya’s incredible donors, Carya was there for Rachel and her family in their moment of need.

Each year, Carya provides thousands of low or no-cost counselling sessions to individuals and families in the Calgary community. For many, these sessions are truly life changing.

“Carya and their therapists have changed the direction of our lives. I have overcome a lot of challenges, and I am so grateful that I didn’t have to do it alone,” says Rachel, reflecting on her time with Carya.

This holiday season, please consider making a gift that will remove barriers and help individuals and families navigate life’s unexpected twist and turns. Donations can be made at www.CaryaCalgary.ca/Donate or by calling 403-205-5252. When you invest in Carya, you are helping individuals and families like Rachel’s find hope, healing, and resilience.
