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


The YWCA NWT Family Centre is now located at 4902 Franklin Avenue, Yellowknife (above the post office). The Centre is for children up to age 5. We focus on mental and physical wellness for every family, and our programs are for families and parents in need of a space to engage with their children through play and learning. We go on fun community outings and provide two snacks daily. The Family Centre is moving into its new location and we're looking forward to re-opening soon!

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. Please contact us for more info on the toy library.
