The YWCA’s primary focus is on safety: immediate protection from violence and abuse.  And to that end, every day of the year, every hour of the day; our 24 Hour Support and Crisis Line is open.

Our 24 Hour Support and Crisis Line is staffed with trained, caring and skilled counsellors 24/7.

Last year we answered 4,888 calls on this line.  Sometimes we speak with women wondering about their options, uncertain whether what they’re experiencing counts as abuse.  Sometimes we speak with women who urgently need the safety of our shelter and services.
