Emergency Shelter

The emergency shelter provides a safe place to stay for up to 25 women each night.

Single Room Occupancy

Our Single Room Occupancy units provide second-stage housing to women exiting chronic homelessness.

Yellowknife Women’s Centre

The Yellowknife Women’s Society has been providing shelter for women experiencing homelessness in our current location since 2004.  In December 2017, renovations were completed on the basement of the building, allowing us to add eight single-room occupancy rental units to our services.  The Yellowknife Women’s Centre also houses a weekly walk-in clinic, and a food hamper program (based on availability). 


Help support the programs and services offered by the Yellowknife Women’s Centre.  Donate online!
