If you are in distress and need help immediately, call 911. If you need a bed and a place to stay, the YWCA Prince Albert operates emergency homeless shelters at our Central Avenue and Our House locations. They are both open with advocates on duty 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our advocates can direct you to our emergency shelters or other emergency services in the Prince Albert Region.
If you have a family member or a friend in a crisis, do not leave them alone. Try to get the person to seek help immediately. Please visit our Emergency Resources to see how to best help your friend in need.

Emergency housing - short-term accommodation for people who are homeless or in crisis.
Transitional housing - housing intended to offer a supportive living environment and tools and opportunities for social and skills development. It is an intermediate step between emergency shelters and more permanent housing.
Supportive housing - a combination of housing and services intended to help people live more stable, productive lives.
