We envision an equitable world where women, families, youth, and children thrive in inclusive communities. While meeting the changing needs of local self-identified women and girls, we remain committed to gender equality.
With over a century of dedication to women and their families, the YW Kitchener-Waterloo serves the community as one of our region’s most vital providers of shelter, housing and employment services for women and girls.
