The YWCA Halifax relies on charitable donations and the generous support of our community.

Because of you, we are building economic security, promoting wellness, and creating opportunities for young women, girls, and their families by providing a strong voice and integrated services.

There are countless ways to give but no matter how you give or how much you give, your gift makes a difference. 

We are hoping you will consider making a donation,

Your support, now as much as ever, is so needed and deeply valued.

About Safe Spaces

We have an immediate need for women’s clothes, canned goods, and small items.

Safe Spaces is an emergency crisis housing project for victims and survivors of sexual exploitation and human trafficking. Engaging with the NSTAY (Nova Scotia Transition and Advocacy for Youth) program, this project will provide youth in crisis with a safe space to stay so they can stabilize and take the first steps to regaining control over their lives. Often times, for this clientele, the shelter system and domestic violence system can feel unsafe and/or unwelcome.

Please call 902-423-6162 x 2225 for more details and drop off location details.
