Join us as we Build a Vibrant Future for Vulnerable Women and Women at Risk
YW Calgary believes women and their children have the right to thrive in a safe and equitable community. We know it takes a village to do what needs to be done, a community of people saying collectively, as they are with campaigns like #metoo and #timesup, that SHE matters. We believe when women thrive, their families thrive, their community thrives and Calgary thrives.
Do you believe?
“This campaign is a good investment because it is helping to fill a critical need in our community. As we strengthen women and children through this new facility, we make our entire community stronger and more vibrant.” Bonnie DuPont, Corporate Director and YW Calgary Advisory Committee Member
