More Than Just a Safe Place

Crisis Shelter & Residence

Emergency Shelter

The YWCA Saskatoon offers short-term emergency shelter for all women and children who are in need of a safe place to stay for up to 30 days. We have staff available 24 hours a day 7 days a week. We are inclusive, accepting, and give our clients much more than just a warm bed for the night. Our shelter welcomes clients experiencing everything from domestic abuse, homelessness, addiction, and mental health issues.

When women and families in our community face hardship and poverty, YWCA Saskatoon helps provide emergency shelter and a fresh start. Our trained and dedicated staff are committed to helping all shelter residents who come to us in time of crisis.

We provide:

  • Basic food and personal items
  • Crisis counselling
  • Assistance with conflict resolution
  • Connections to legal resources and educational supports
  • Referrals to medical professionals if required
  • Advocacy on behalf of the woman and/or child

Last year the YWCA Saskatoon’s shelter housed 950 women, youth, and children but unfortunately we had to turn away more than we could serve.
