About Women's Centre of York Region

Your support will have a ripple effect - and at Women’s Centre of York Region, we witness the impact of those ripples on our clients and our community. We know when we help a woman regain self-esteem and control in her life, the impact goes far beyond her. Her children and her family feel the positive ripple and in turn create their own – her daughter does better in school with a full stomach and an eager mind. Her employer benefits from her focused efforts in the workplace. Her community benefits from her renewed participation. Our ability to start that first ripple begins with you.

For low and moderate income women who have identified the need and desire for positive change in their lives, Women’s Centre of York Region has been quietly making a difference in their lives for 40 years! We create a safe, nurturing and inclusive environment where women feel supported on their journey to create positive change in their lives.

Our clients are courageous women from all cultural, social, ethnic and economic backgrounds who are living with abuse - physical, emotional, mental or sexual, struggling to feed and clothe their families, raising families on their own or seeking entrepreneurial and employment development training.
