The mandate of the YWCA Niagara Region is that no woman is turned away. Women can become homeless for a variety of reasons. Any woman 16 years of age or older requiring emergency homeless shelter and support is welcome. Women’s advocates are on duty 24/7 in both St. Catharines and Niagara Falls, to assist guests in setting goals and accessing community resources in their search for stable housing as they continue on their path to independence.
