Social enterprises

When you break a sweat at the YWCA Health + Fitness Centre or update your wardrobe at the YWCA Thrift Shop, you’re helping women and their children across Metro Vancouver live free from poverty and violence.

We think of our three social enterprises as businesses with a community purpose—they help fund YWCA programs and services so we can continue to pursue our mission and contribute to the health of our communities.
