    Beth Barberree | Canadian Centre for Men and Families

    I’m the executive director for the Alberta branch of the Canadian Centre for Men and Families (CCMF). Our people meet men where they’re at and help equip them to rebuild after relationships fail, stay connected with children and recover from trauma. We believe improving men’s mental health makes them better dads, safer workers and more engaged contributing members of their communities. Programs that focus on men’s unique experience are rare in Canada, and I’m thrilled to share news of our agency with other CSAE members. I believe that collaboration and knowledge-sharing make us all stronger as we work on solutions for common challenges facing non-profit organizations. I look forward to connecting with you!
