Help Women Be Free From Violence

Thousands of women in Winnipeg continue to live with violence because they do not yet have the support they need to leave. We want to ensure we continue to maintain the positions of our GBV Case Workers and help many more women flee violence.

With your caring and generosity, you can make sure this is possible.

You can provide women who’ve experienced violence and trauma with a safe place. You can guide women to find their community and a sense of belonging, so they no longer feel alone.

Winter is Here!

We need YOUR help in providing winter gear to help keep community warm this season! We urgently need jackets, toques, hats, mitts, gloves, winter boots and warm socks.

Donations can be dropped off at 640 Ellice Ave during open hours.

Please check out our list of Items Needed for more information on what you can donate.

Housing is a Human Right

People living in poverty and experiencing homelessness have been telling us what they need for years.

It’s time for governments at all levels to start listening.

Community members came together to tell us what genuinely affordable housing and an adequate income would mean for them. We promised to share their answers with decision-makers in government.

Find out what they have to say.


Our COVID-19 Plan

Drop-in capacity is a maximum of 15 people.
There is a 30-minute time limit in place. We ask that you leave to allow other participants the chance to use services.

In our continued effort to protect our community members and keep everyone safe, masks are required to access the Centre. We can provide you with a mask if you do not have one.

West Central Women’s Resource Centre empowers women, and their community, to move from where they are to where they want to be, by providing responsive programming, facilitating knowledge sharing and connection, and contributing to culture shift and policy transformation.
