Creating brighter futures for women & families

Equality, opportunity, choice

As part of the oldest and largest women’s social service organization in Canada, the YWCA Edmonton has been serving the capital region since its founding in 1907. We are a women’s organization that advances the wellness and growth of women, girls, and families. 

“The YWCA is the reason I’m alive today. When I first walked into the Counselling Centre, I had run out of reasons to live. I had no money to afford help.
