For 41 years we’ve helped thousands of women build the confidence and skills to transition their lives from hopelessness to possibility. We couldn’t have done that without the support of the York Region community – our volunteers, donors and program funders.

The need is greater than ever and with your continued generosity and support we can help thousands more women – mothers, sisters, aunts, neighbours, co-workers and friends.

We all create ripples daily. At Women’s Centre of York Region we witness those ripples every day on our clients and in our community. We know that when we help a woman regain self-esteem and control in her life, the impact goes far beyond her. Her children and her family feel the positive ripple and in turn create their own – her daughter does better at school with a full stomach and an eager mind. Her employer benefits from her focused effects in the workplace. Her community benefits from her renewed participation. Our ability to start that first ripple begins with support and financial contributions from our community.
