Y W Calgary | Community Updates | October 2018
YW in the Community
We are excited to share some updates on construction at the YW Hub facility, repairs at YW Sheriff King Home, community spaces in the YW Hub and opportunities for partnerships and community involvement.

Read below to see what is new at YW and what you can expect to see in the near future. 
Construction continues to quickly progress on the YW Hub facility; we are 50% complete and on track for our spring 2019 possession date. 

The building is almost completely closed in now. The exterior cladding is underway and will be complete in a few months.

Landscaping is also underway – curbs and gutters are being poured as is the asphalt for the surface parking and the plaza at the front of the building. Planting will take place this fall, but is very weather dependent and some planting may occur in the spring.

Community Spaces in the YW Hub
Did you hear? The YW Hub will be a beacon for women and their families – the community spaces will offer activity, opportunity and connection for our neighbours and the greater Calgary community.
The YW Hub community spaces will provide YW clients and the community with:
  • Opportunities to engage in a variety of services, programs and/or social and cultural activities that reflect local needs.
  • Greater awareness of and access to YW programs and services.
  • Support to thrive in their community and experience deeper social and economic inclusion.
  • Opportunities to build supportive relationships and be connected to each other and community.

What part do YOU want to play in the new YW Hub facility? Engagement sessions will begin late fall. Stay tuned or contact Amy, Community Hub Director, at aalexander@ywcalgary.ca

Be Part of the Transformation
Fall is a busy time for the fundraising campaign with our team spending lots of time in the community meeting with potential friends and supporters of this project. Over the coming months, YW Calgary will be speaking at various community events and will be the beneficiary of several micro-fundraisers in community spaces and home kitchens!
If you would like to learn more about having the YW speak with your business or community group or how to host your own fundraising event, email Alison, Campaign Director,
