Helping women, men and their families

We're Moving!

After 20 years at our current home, the Welcome Centre Shelter for Women and families is making a move! Our new home, at 500 Tuscarora, will serve women and families, and the community as a whole, for many years to come.


Welcome Centre Shelter for Women Programs help women and families end the cycle of poverty and violence in their lives.

It's Just a Door.Until You Don't Have One.

Everyone should have a place to call home. In Windsor Essex, hundreds of women and families are in need of emergency shelter and housing support. Become a Centre Keyholder and help open doors for those experiencing homelessness in our community.

Centre Keyholders help bring financial stability to the shelter, create a strong sense of sisterhood, and assist in future program planning for clients. You can help to ensure that people have access to safe and secure temporary housing. You can help to make a difficult time easier for the children who are misplaced during a housing crisis. You can make a difference.

Sign up for monthly donations and become a Centre Keyholder today!
