YWCA of Calgary

SHARE THE HOPE

Your gift makes a difference, give the gift of a promising future for vulnerable women and children in Calgary.

WELCOME TO THE YWCA

The YWCA of Calgary is dedicated to breaking cycles of family violence, homelessness, and poverty. When and where she needs us most, we provide emergency shelter, housing, counselling 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.
