SHE HOPES FOR MANY THINGS

Your support makes these things happen.

We are YW Calgary

We are dedicated to breaking cycles of family violence, homelessness, and poverty. When and where she needs us most, we provide emergency shelter, housing, counselling, child development and support. Share in our mission by helping to foster healthy women, healthy families, and thriving communities.

Everyone here has been so helpful with figuring out my next steps, especially at a time when I couldn’t think straight.

Meet the new YW!

We support our clients in meeting their immediate, and most basic, needs and then work directly with them to create positive change in their lives. We believe that healthy women and healthy families lead to thriving communities.
