Every month, YWCA Saskatoon is working to improve the well-being of women, girls and families. It's because of the generous contributions of supporters in our community that we are able to help make a difference.

Thank you for believing in the work we do at the YWCA, and for your gifts of both financial support and volunteer support!

Executive Director, Barb Macpherson

Royal LePage Realty hiked through the Andes to Machu Picchu to raise money for shelters throughout Canada. In Saskatoon, the YWCA Crisis Shelter and Residence was selected as a recipient - now that's a party with a purpose!  

The YWCA sincerely thanks Team Fisher for giving up modern conveniences during their hike for the purpose of supporting the Crisis Shelter and Residence!
