Emergency Shelter

The YW's emergency shelter is a 66-bed shelter for women, transgender people, and families who are experiencing homelessness. The program provides basic necessities, crisis support, housing help, advocacy, information, and referral to longer-term community supports and services. It is located at 84 Frederick Street in downtown Kitchener.

We are unable to process cash or cash equivalent donations (such as gift cards) at this location. Cash or cash equivalent donations will be gratefully accepted at our 153 Frederick Street administration office between 8.30 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday to Friday.
