Our Objective: Is to provide programs and or funding for people to improve themselves and enhance their lives.

SH5PES is a certified incorporated board that was formed on October 11th, 2015. Verna Besselink (former president) was inspired to start a society after seeing the need for support after the High River Flood. She approached Jody Swift (a teacher and life coach) and together they began to spread the word. The board was quickly formed.

People approach the board when they are in need of financial support. They may be interested in doing a class, program or seminar intended on helping said person improve their lives; the board has supported people in joining drum circles, taking personal development seminars, doing online personal development classes, art classes, drama classes, yoga classes, meditation, etc.

There are many charities and non for profit societies geared towards helping specific populations like: women, children in sports, elders, or specific cultures'; However our boards funds are open to anyone who fits the aforementioned criteria.

Treasurer: Mark Klaudt
