An upcoming YWCA Halifax program will create 32 new supportive housing spots for women and gender diverse people in Halifax/Kjipuktuk. The creation of this high need program comes from a thoughtful partnership between the Government of Nova Scotia, Grafton Developments, and YWCA Halifax.
Located at the historic and repurposed Waverly Inn, participants will have access to their own individual space and 24/7 on-site support from staff. The range of supports offered will include mental health and addictions counselling referrals, employment services, skills training, and more.
On July 3, YWCA Halifax childcare joined Swings Daycare to open an Elmsdale Early Learning Centre. After 25 years, owner of Swings Daycare, Shelley Boyce, started her well-earned retirement after transferring ownership of the daycare to YWCA Halifax.
