Supporting women and
their families since 1910.
YWCA Regina serves the community from Treaty 4 lands. Treaty 4 is home to the Saulteaux, Cree, Dakota, Lakota, and Nakota peoples, as well as the homeland of the Métis. We thank the Indigenous people for being stewards of these lands and want to specifically acknowledge the strength and resilience of Indigenous women and recognize their ongoing leadership and community building.
Homelessness and poverty are critical issues facing our community. When we apply a gendered lens to our research, we discover that women and families experience homelessness differently than men. Women and girls stay in unsafe situations, couch surf, trade sex for accommodation, or choose to stay in abusive relationships, often making family homelessness invisible.
Our Childcare Centres offer a full range of developmental programming to nurture your child’s physical, emotional, social and intellectual well-being. We believe every child has a right to quality education that fosters healthy development. We celebrate each child’s unique strength and creativity.
Each year, nearly 200 women who walk through our doors are set up for success by our Outreach Program. We use our resources to ensure women and families are taken care of in the community and transition smoothly into safe housing. Once established, we continue to support them in the community because our doors are always open.
Have you identified a need for education in your workplace, school, or organization? YWCA Regina is available to present on topics related to domestic violence, healthy relationships, and healthy masculinity. Presentations are tailored to the needs of the audience, whether the purpose is professional development, community awareness, or personal prevention.
Wellness is the process of learning new life skills and making conscious choices toward a balanced and healthy lifestyle. When we keep social, physical, and emotional wellness in mind, we make space for individuals and families to develop their own resources and capacity to continue a healthy lifestyle.
"Our voices are powerful agents for immediate change. Be bold."
