Dear friends of YWCA Halifax
We are pleased to report that despite the COVID19 pandemic, we at the YWCA are still serving women, girls and families in our community.
All of our housing programs are full, our human trafficking team is in daily contact with youth who have been commercially exploited, and our youth programs are meeting with local young people to talk about cyber violence.  Our microloan program for women fleeing violence is still cutting cheques and our supports for newcomers and our employment programs are in touch daily with those who have come to us for support. 
To date, we’ve worked hard that not one YWCA employee has lost their job and, instead, we’ve ramped up our support for participants and staff who are struggling to make ends meet.  
But, of course, we’ve had to make adjustments. So, here’s our ask of you.  
We are hoping you will consider making a donation,

Your support, now as much as ever, is so needed and deeply valued.  

Thank you in advance for your generosity.  
From all of the women, girls, families, and youth of YWCA Halifax

About Safe Spaces

Safe Spaces is an emergency crisis housing project for victims and survivors of sexual exploitation and human trafficking. Engaging with the NSTAY (Nova Scotia Transition and Advocacy for Youth) program, this project will provide youth in crisis with a safe space to stay so they can stabilize and take the first steps to regaining control over their lives. Often times, for this clientele, the shelter system and domestic violence system can feel unsafe and/or unwelcome.

Please call 902-423-6162 x 2225 for more details and drop off location details.
