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 4 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.
