Creating strong families are at the core of everything we do. Learn more about our Family Centre and services available to parents and caregivers.


YWCA NWT Family Centre is for children up to age 5. We focus on mental and physical wellness for every family. Our program is intended to serve vulnerable families and parents in need of a space to engage with their children through play and learning. We attend outtings that take place in the community and provide two snacks daily.
Location: #102, 4905-54th Ave (Rockridge Apartments). There are also many community outings to events and activities.

For current schedules and updates, follow the Family Centre on Facebook!


We offers parents support to address the challenges of parenting in an isolated community and parenting children with unique social, emotional, and physical needs.


We are working to replenish our toy lending library after having most items be destroyed in a fire in 2018.

This amazing FREE resource allows families to borrow toys, books and games for free! Keep the borrowed items for 2 weeks and we'll send you a reminder email when you need to return them.
