The Welcome Centre Shelter for Women was established in 1989 and provides emergency shelter to women experiencing homelessness. Our name has changed this year (from The Well-Come Centre for Human Potential) to better identify our mission. The Welcome Centre offers programming to women 18 years of age or over to assist in ending the cycle of homelessness, poverty and violence.
The Welcome Centre Shelter for Women welcomes donations of money and various items such as food and personal hygiene products, and we are always in need of volunteers as well. The best way to start donating to a local shelter is to give us a call and find out our current and most important needs.
If you are female 18 years or older, and experiencing homelessness, contact The Welcome Centre Shelter for Women directly at 519-971-7595. Males are encouraged to contact the Salvation Army at 519-253-7473.
Our programs encourage women to realize their full potential. Working together we help women end the cycle of homelessness, poverty and violence.
