YWCA Thompson logo


The YWCA Thompson operates its residence, hostel and programs without permanent core funding. In other words – we rely on donations, fund raising, partnerships and community investment. You can help to positively impact the lives of women and their families at critical turning points in their lives by donating to YWCA Thompson. We issue charitable tax receipts. Simply contact Executive Director, Kim Hickes at 204.778.6341 or executivedirector@ywcathompson.com.


Cash or credit card donations are gratefully (and joyfully) accepted.



Signature Events
