will continue through our sister in ministry: HER Victory.
HER Victory has always been a partner of Next Step Ministries in walking alongside women to break cycles of exploitation and crisis at each stage of their healing journey – and therefore HER Victory is God’s chosen successor to continue the work of Next Step Ministries, to provide wrap-around care and ongoing support to these women that are so deeply loved by God.
We would encourage you to review HER Victory’s website at https://hervictory.ca/ or email HER Victory at email@example.com to learn more about how you can be involved in the impact that HER Victory is making for Jesus in Calgary, and beyond.
and no safe place to escape.
We are on a mission to change that.
It happens in your city
When people hear the words human trafficking, they often think of overseas or third world countries. Trafficking happens right here in Canada, in Alberta, in Calgary.
93% of trafficking in Canada is domestic with the average age of entry into exploitation being 12-14 years old.
What we’re doing about it
Walking alongside women impacted by sexual exploitation as they break the cycles of addiction and abuse.
We have five programs designed to help bring choice to those with the fewest choices. NSM offers hope and provides opportunities for women to build a life of freedom and safety.
Everyone deserves choices and safety
Next Step Ministries is a Christian non-profit organization that believes, with our community of supporters, we can make a great impact on this crisis in our lifetime. Our goal is to offer a safe place for every woman who wants to exit sexual exploitation through services offered and intentional partnerships with like-minded agencies.
Next Step Ministries honours and acknowledges the traditional territories of the people of the Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta, which includes the Blackfoot Confederacy (comprising the Siksika, Piikani, and Kainai First Nations), as well as the Tsuut’ina First Nation, and the Stoney Nakoda (including the Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley First Nations). The City of Calgary is also home to Métis Nation of Alberta, Region III. Next Step Ministries is situated on land adjacent to where the Bow River meets the Elbow River, and that the traditional Blackfoot name of this place is Moh’kins’tsis, which we now call the City of Calgary.
