The Yellowknife Women’s Society

The Yellowknife Women’s Society is a grassroots community-based charitable organization. The goal of the society is to support and assist women in empowering themselves so they can develop their goals, achieve wellness, enjoy equality and be recognized for the contributions they make to the community. Today, the YWS runs the Yellowknife Women’s Centre (a women’s shelter and 8 single occupancy rental units for women), the Yellowknife Housing First Program (providing housing and support for up to 20 formerly homeless individuals), the Yellowknife Street Outreach Van (providing transportation for individuals who may be intoxicated or otherwise in need of assistance and seeking a safe place to sleep) and the Yellowknife Work Ready Program (providing work opportunities for individuals who struggle to find employment).
