Since 1905, YWCA Kitchener-Waterloo has provided essential programs for women and children. Today, we offer early learning and care; emergency and supportive housing; counselling, advocacy, and referrals; and collaborative community leadership.
We are a community-based charitable organization governed by a 15-member, volunteer Board of Directors. We are a member association of YWCA Canada, the largest women's multi-service organization in Canada.
