Drop-In & General Services

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.

Drop-in

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.

Laundry & Shower Facilities

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:

  • Shower – Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:00-11:30
  • Laundry – Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:00-11:00, 1:00-2:00

Childminding Space

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.

  • Monday 12:00 – 4:00
  • Tuesday 2:00 – 4:00
  • Wednesday 12:00 – 4:00

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.

It was fun to be with women where there was a spirit of shared generosity and humour…in terms of kindness, support, acceptance, respect and care” – participant
