What does the NYWC-LEF partnership mean for members and donors?
Existing programs by our dedicated staff in safe, accessible spaces for women and their children will continue unchanged. Funder and partner agreements will be maintained; staff and board members will continue in their roles. Donations will continue to go directly to programming and supports for women.
The partnership with LEF will enable NYWC to maintain its identity as a women’s resource centre, while expanding the reach of its programming to include education, training and employment services, and strengthen linkages to vital supports, such as childcare and food security.
The move will facilitate outreach to new communities of women who will benefit from NYWC services. Women in North and West Toronto will be more effectively linked to what they need to be successful.
We thank all of the members, donors, participants and volunteers who have guided our transition and look forward to welcoming you in our new space.
