Girls and Women Thriving

When everyone contributes, we can make a home.

This winter help us continue to make a difference in lives of Canberrans by giving what you can afford, to ensure that all women, children and families in our community have the essential supports and resources that everyone needs to live.

Appropriate, affordable and stable housing is essential to the wellbeing of both individuals and communities and is a critical first step in building a life.

The rising cost of renting in the private market and growing wait lists for public and community housing are everyday realities for many Canberra families.

YWCA Canberra is committed to making a fundamental change on the complex causes for homelessness and financial inequity for women by providing support to those in need.

Your contribution will help us provide:

  • affordable housing for older women in the Canberra community
  • supported accommodation for women and their families who are at risk of homelessness
  • prevention of homelessness through outreach services
  • support to Canberra residents whose housing is at risk, to maintain a safe and stable home.

As a not-for-profit organisation, we use our funding carefully to meet the needs of those we aim to help. Your donation will assist us in our work to provide important programs and services to the Canberra community.

Our vision is Girls and Women Thriving. For girls and women to thrive they need appropriate, safe, affordable and stable housing.

All donations over $2 are tax deductible.
