YW Calgary | Community Updates | January 2019
YW in the Community
We are excited to share with you the latest news and updates about the YW Hub facility, opportunities for partnerships and community involvement. Read below to learn more!
The new year brings more excitement as we move closer to the completion of our YW Hub facility in spring 2019.

Construction progresses with the exterior framing nearly complete on the link between the two sides of the building. The siding installation also continues around the outside.

On the inside, work continues on the ceiling grids and framing throughout the building. The community spaces, such as the multipurpose room and fitness centre are bring drywalled. Bedrooms and bathrooms in the transitional shelter are being tiled.

The YW Hub facility will house 100 women in the transitional shelter, each with their own bedroom and bathroom.

Community Spaces in the YW Hub
In a few short months the community spaces in the YW Hub will begin to host activity, opportunity and connection for our neighbours and the greater Calgary community. We are working with a number of community partners to create innovative opportunities for the community – watch for more details in the coming months.
Thank you to all who have reached out to us to inquire about how you can be part of the new YW Hub spaces. Please keep those questions and creative ideas coming – we are capturing your thoughts and we will continue working to create engaging community spaces everyone can enjoy in the YW Hub facility.

Be Part of the Transformation
“This campaign is a good investment because it is helping to fill a critical need in our community. As we strengthen women and children through this new facility, we make our entire community stronger and more vibrant.”

-Bonnie DuPont, Corporate Director and YW Calgary Advisory Committee Member
We are grateful and excited to ring in the new year with our passionate YW Transformation Campaign Advisory Committee. This group helps guide and support YW's transformation as we continue to grow and adapt to meet the changing needs of women and their families in our city.

The YW Transformation Advisory Committee is comprised of prominent business and community leaders who provide focus and direction to the YW Transformation Campaign and help mobilize community support to ensure vulnerable women in Calgary have access to the programs and services they need in our community for decades to come.

YW 101
In December, YW celebrated 108 years of supporting women and their families in Calgary!

Since 1910, when YW Calgary met women at the train station to offer housing opportunities, our programs and services have adapted to meet changing needs of women experiencing poverty, homelessness or domestic abuse. 

Today, we focus on enhancing women’s safety and well-being while advocating for equity. The YW Transformation Campaign is another step in the evolution, and will propel YW Calgary to sustainability, providing vulnerable women with uninterrupted access to the programs and services they need to thrive.
