Please note that as of August 16, 2014 we will no longer have a clothing room at WCWRC. If you have a donation or are looking for free/inexpensive clothing and household items, you can check out these great resources: Clothing, Household items.
Our Drop-In is a great place to stop by, have a snack and chat with other women in the community. The chairs are comfortable and hot coffee is always available. The Drop-In area offers a free community phone and computer, free laundry and shower facilities, and a playroom for children to use while parents are in the Centre.
The Drop-In Coordinator can also help those looking for information or support. We can link people with different resources at the Centre or throughout Winnipeg.
This free service is available for women with no access to laundry or shower. Women must sign up in advance at the front desk. Hours are:
Our spacious play area is equipped with lots of wonderful toys and books. When a child is accompanied by a parent or guardian, this room is available for use during any of the Centre’s regular hours. Children can also play in the care of trained Childminders while a parent or guardian is in the Centre; enjoying a coffee and conversation in the Drop-in or participating in a program.
Regular Childminding hours are:
Please Note: children must remain with parent’s caregivers at all times. If children are in the childminding room, parents/caregivers must remain in the building.
