About the YWCA

YWCA Saskatoon is a vibrant, community-based organization that responds to the needs of women and their families in Saskatoon, providing both preventative and emergent services. We are a member of YWCA Canada and our funding comes from government, granting agencies, charitable donations, and fee-for-service.

We currently employ more than 100 people and serve approximately 8000 women, men, youth, and children annually.
