Mobile advocacy & connection to community services
Our 32-bed residence offers single and double rooms with shared kitchen, bathroom and laundry for women (and any dependent children) to rent on a monthly basis at very reasonable rates.
Thrifty Over Fifty is a pop-up shop that provides local women who may be having trouble making ends meet with access to the wonderful donations we receive at the YWCA – and they can access them free of charge. Hosted in our YWCA Co-Ed Fitness Centre women’s change room, the shop provides women with a welcoming change room environment and plenty of opportunity to connect with others.
As an added benefit, the program allows seniors who may be struggling to become familiar with the YWCA, where they’ll have easy access to our Outreach staff who can help connect them with the many programs and services we offer within our organization and with services provided elsewhere.
