Y's Women's Centre

Services & Programs

The Y’s Women’s Centre is a place for women and their children and girls to meet in a supportive environment, to improve their understanding of community resources, enhance their capacity to make healthier choices, motivate themselves and each other to lead, increase awareness of issues in the community that impact them and their families.
