Central Avenue


Shelter and Transitional Housing for Women, Children & Youth.



Located on the 2nd floor of the YWCA Central Avenue building, the shelter contains 19 rooms with a total of 50 beds. There are 2 common areas each with a kitchen and lounge. Laundry facilities are also located on site.


Accessible 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, the Central Avenue shelter provides emergency shelter to women with or without children in crisis.


Women who have come the YWCA in crisis may require longer term transitional shelter to "get back on her feet". Women who are no longer in crisis but still need a safe and supportive environment can continue to reside at the YWCA for up to 3 months. Longer stays can be accommodated in certain circumstances.


The YWCA has a limited number of rooms available for women who want to make arrangements a head of time. Call for the current room rental rates.


Open to all genders, the Youth Program at Central Avenue provides both crisis and long term placement for ages 16-18 (sometimes to 21). While residing here the youth have access to a number of services including meals, cultural activities, recreation, life skills and 24 hour support. Youth may come in crisis, but are generally referred through the Ministry of Social Services, the Young Offenders Program or ICFS. Please contact the main office at 306.763.8571 if you are calling from an agency to refer a youth.
