Violence against women is the world's largest human rights violation. Canada is no exception. Durham Region has one of the highest incidences of domestic violence in our province.
Our supporters have come alongside us to help carry out our vision of an inclusive community where women, children, youth and families are safe, inspired and empowered to grow.
We depend on the generosity of community leaders, foundations, private corporations, families and individuals to help carry out our mission.
We invite you to join us! Together, we are Saving Lives, Changing Lives.
A little kindness goes a very long way!
Heartfelt thanks to Lisa and Natalie of Dubois Creations Salon in Oshawa for treating the women and children of Y's WISH Shelter to complimentary haircuts. This gesture is very appreciated by our residents, as they often don't have the time or money to do this for themselves or their children.
Heartfelt appreciation to all who helped YWCA Durham's families
