The Y's Kids Program provides a safe place where children and teens can explore their many feelings about their experiences at home. The program is appropriate for children aged 5 -16.
Parents may refer their children into the program. Once a referral is received, staff do a brief assessment to determine whether Y's Kids group or individual services are right for each child. There is no fee. Click here for more information.
The Big Sisters mentoring program provides girls and young women with a role model to talk to and share the experiences of growing up with. Through regular outings, a relationship is developed between the mentor and the mentee, which is built on trust and common interests, and is supported by our experienced caseworkers. The result is a life-changing experience for both the mentor and the mentee.
While providing a safe place for women to turn to is a priority for YWCA Regina, our long-term commitment is to prevent intimate partner abuse, to break the cycle of violence, and to work toward a violence-free community. Partners and children call all be affected by abusive relationships. The YWCA offers a shelter, information and programming for adults and children.
The YWCA Regina's second hand store is conveniently located on the main floor of our downtown facility. Made possible by ongoing donations of goods from the community and the tireless work of dedicated volunteers.
The Encore Market is an outlet for low-cost toys, clothing, books and household goods.
All donations of goods are first made available to clients from Isabel Johnson Shelter, My Aunt's Place, and Kikinaw Residence—their needs are given priority. Items that are not needed by clients will at times will be used in a program area, or are displayed in our store, where they are still available to our clients at no cost, or sold to the public at garage sale prices. Profits from sales, currently more than $30,000 annually, support our YWCA programs for women and children.
At times, more donations come in than we can use in any of the ways listed above. We then donate surplus goods to other charities.
The YWCA Regina also provides information on abuse. Visit the website for more information.
