Sponsor a family this Christmas!

Christmas can be a very stressful time for families on fixed or low incomes. Parents must often choose basic necessities over a Christmas meal or gifts for their children. By sponsoring a family in the YWCA housing program this holiday season, you can make their Christmas shine brighter and help give kids a Christmas morning they otherwise may not have.


Sign up to support a family by  December 6, 2022

Here's how the YWCA NWT holiday family sponsorship program works:  

  1. Review the Gift Value Guidelines on this page to determine which family size suits your budget or that of your workplace or organization;

  2. Email us at and let us know what family size you would like to sponsor;

  3. We'll let you know the child's age, gender, if they are a single parent or 2 parent/guardian family, and a wish list (if we have received one from the family);

  4. Go shopping! (or supply gift cards if that is your preference);

  5. Drop off unwrapped gifts and grocery gift cards at the YWCA NWT housing office in December - parents like to know the gifts their children are receiving. We'll send you a reminder e-mail with dates, times, and locations for drop-off.

  6. Feel great about bringing joy to a local family this holiday season!
