Housing & Shelter

Addressing the basic shelter needs of vulnerable women and their children who are struggling with homelessness or fleeing family violence, in a safe and secure environment.

Home is a place of refuge and security but for too many women and their families this isn’t the case. A core focus of YW Calgary is to help provide safe and affordable housing to support clients in crisis, then to address the root causes, helping clients to have the security to plan and grow from.
