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 Indigenous people for being stewards of these lands. We acknowledge the strength and resilience of Indigenous women and recognize their ongoing leadership and community building.

Gender Based Violence

SAFE TO SURF?

If you have accessed this information because you are in an abusive relationship, please consider your safety. Abusers often monitor your online activity just like they monitor your other activity.

 

You should be aware that abusers can easily monitor computer use. Even if you delete your history, 'spyware' is available to track every site you visit and everything you type. If you think your computer activity might be monitored, it may be safest to use a computer at a library or a friend’s place to search for information, or send emails related to your escape plan.

Isabel Johnson Shelter

Isabel Johnson Shelter is a safe place to stay while you work through future plans and a place to turn to by phone if you need someone to talk to about the abuse you’ve experienced. Our services are confidential and free of charge. To set up your stay, or for support and guidance by phone, call 306-525-2141 and ask to speak to a shelter worker.


If you are a woman who needs to flee a violent or abusive situation, then you are eligible to stay, with or without children, without charge. When you call us, the staff member you talk to will ask some questions about your situation and will let you know whether there is space available or not. If Isabel Johnson Shelter is currently full, they will suggest other options for you.

 

What to expect in shelter:

  • A private facility

  • Private bedrooms for single women or families

  • Shared kitchen and living rooms

  • 24-hour staff available to assist and support you

  • Optional group support activities

  • An atmosphere of respect
     

Isabel Johnson thanks the Government of Saskatchewan Ministry of Justice for providing core funding to support our operations. We are supported in part by a grant from the Social Development Community Investment Program of the City of Regina, and we recognize Winners/Homesense as partners in the Canadian Women’s Foundation Campaign to End Violence Again Women.
