Managing concerns around COVID-19 at the YWCA

In an effort to minimize the spread of the Novel Coronavirus in our community, the YWCA Niagara Region is making changes that will assist our staff, clients, volunteers and donors in remaining healthy during these uncertain times.

We are committed to the health and well-being of the community, while continuing to deliver essential services and support to those who need it. The YWCA Niagara Region is staying up to date with Niagara Region Public Health and taking into account all guidelines, protocols and procedures applied at shelters and drop-in centres across the province.

Until April 6th the following changes will be in place at the YWCA Niagara Region:

Skills Development

In-person meetings for Skills Development programming have been cancelled; however, participants can still connect with their program coordinator on a one-to-one basis by phone. If you are in need of support during this time, please call your coordinator, leave a voicemail and a call back number. Your coordinator will get in touch with you as soon as possible.

Transitional Housing Program

Our Transitional Housing Program will continue with some restrictions and our transitional housing workers will be in contact in the following days.

We need your help…

During these times of uncertainty, our organization experiences a unique strain to our system. With an inability to close our doors, please consider supporting the YWCA with a financial donation during these uncertain times. Your support does not go unnoticed by our clients, staff and community. Thank you for helping us through a challenging time.

We will continue to do our best to keep you up to date as we monitor this situation and respond accordingly! Thank you for your continued support as we experience these uncertain times.

If you have any questions, please contact Elisabeth Zimmermann at ezimmermann@ywcaniagararegion.ca.

Thank you for your support and cooperation.
