Why should you sponsor?
Your sponsorship provides critical financial support allowing us to continue to provide free counseling and life skills programs and services to women living in poverty across York Region. There is no agency, service, or organization that offers what we do. Since 1977, our programs and services support women coming from diverse backgrounds to transition out of poverty, so that they thrive personally, socially, and economically. The work we do has an enormous ripple effect; it is good for women, it’s good for their families, and it’s good for our community.
Women’s Centre of York Region is a not-for-profit, charitable organization serving all of York Region. For over 42 years we have worked with women who identify the need for change in their lives and work alongside them where they are on the journey to prosperity. As a multi-resource centre, we offer all our programs and services to women free of cost and from an anti-oppressive framework.
