About YWCA of Greater Toronto:

Founded in 1873, YWCA Toronto is dedicated to improving the lives of marginalized and disadvantaged women and girls. It helps women and girls flee violence, secure housing, establish their voices, enhance skills and develop confidence. Its services include: a range of housing options (shelter, transitional, and permanent housing); employment and training programs; community support programs (counselling, loans, and support groups); girls' programs (camp, leadership opportunities, and activities centre), and family programs (childcare, workshops, and resources). Additionally, it engages in advocacy on issues such as poverty and violence.

In 2012, YWCA Toronto engaged 640 volunteers, who contributed 19,233 hours. The charity provided: shelter and temporary housing for 1,287 women and children; girls' programs for 1,001 girls; family programs for 1,098 parents and children; and camp for 75 girls. YWCA Toronto also opened the Elm Centre, a 300 unit affordable housing facility, which increased the charity's total number of permanent housing units from 248 to 548.
