The Women’s Centre is a women’s only space which provides services and referrals for all women, as well as a place where women can come and build community. We work with a unique peer model, where women are recognized as the experts in their own lives and volunteers work as women helping other women. We offer women referrals, basic needs assistance, peer support, and many other services. We provide informal social space where women can come and meet with other women over a coffee or a snack. The Women’s Centre is also a place to learn about social issues and work for social change. In general, the Women’s Centre is a very busy and vibrant place to volunteer.
We are now recruiting and training new volunteers!
We have implemented safety and cleaning procedures to ensure that staff and women remain safe during the pandemic and while at the Women's Centre.

We hope you continue to stay safe and we look forward to seeing you soon!
We believe women need strong social and community connections to thrive.
Social inclusion and the participation of women in society are often considered indicators of healthy families and healthy communities. However, an increasing number of women are at risk of being socially isolated. Isolation is a major problem for many women in poverty, new to the city or country, or with health issues. It affects coping skills and makes all other problems harder to deal with.
The Women’s Centre provides a safe and supportive space accessed by thousands of women in Calgary. We offer women opportunities to both receive and provide support, connect with others and build community through a variety of programs. While the Women’s Centre is open to all women, 52% of the women who access our services and volunteer their time are living in poverty.
