The YWCA Niagara Region is a local organization that stands for gender equity and gives a voice to those who are marginalized in our community.
We offer emergency shelter to women, men and families experiencing homelessness (this includes anybody who identifies as non-binary). In addition to our emergency shelters, we offer three stages of transitional housing to help our clients, step by step, break the cycle of homelessness and poverty for good. Along with all of those programs, we offer a wide variety of skills development workshops. They are offered to anybody in our programs, in schools, and some of them are open to the general public.
We invite you to explore our website to learn more about the many different programs and services we offer. Any of the work we do is driven by our vision to create a Niagara where women and families thrive. We are tireless advocates for gender equity.
