Join us to help make a difference for northern families as we raise money to build Lynn's Place 2.0: Transitional and emergency housing building for families! We can't do it without your support. We need your help to Buy a Brick and Build a Home for families in our community! Please make a donation today

Funds raised will support the construction of a new multi-unit, affordable housing building beside Lynn's Place in downtown Yellowknife.  The building will have both transitional and emergency housing units - a total of 21 units (33 beds) and provide supportive housing for women and families who require housing, whether due to homelessness, risk of being homeless, fleeing family violence and others, and will help to fill a major housing gap for people who need a secure, affordable place to live. The building will also have all YWCA NWT administrative offices, offering clients onsite support and programming to provide integrated, onsite support services for families under one roof.


Estimated building cost is $12,080,000. YWCA NWT is also working to secure funds from other major funding partners at the Territorial and Federal level, and other funding partners to make this build possible. 

Estimated construction start date: Early 2022

Estimated completion date: Spring 2023

Campaign Goal: $200,000
