Women’s Centre of York Region offers a range of support and services for women to make positive changes in their lives. Our clients come from York Region – they are mothers, sisters, aunts, neighbors and co-workers. In some cases, our clients may be experiencing significant financial hardship or even violence. One thing our clients share in common is they have identified a deep need and desire for improvement and change in their lives.

Programs: We offer a range of group programs and one-on-one support, all of which are designed to meet each woman where she’s at and to help foster meaningful steps and actions in her life. All of these programs are provided at no charge. Explore our programs below to find which one(s) are right for you.

  • Financial Empowerment (living on a budget)
  • Making Changes (life skills)
  • Wellness Workshops (emotional well-being)
