One-On-One Support Services At NYWC

Getting help or answers when you have a problem is not easy. It can feel overwhelming and intimidating. Sometimes, you just don’t know where to start. The North York Women’s Centre team can help you find information and access support services. We can help answer your questions and guide you towards appropriate referrals in North York, Toronto and other parts of Ontario. We can even make the first call for you, with your permission.

If you are a woman-identifying or non-binary person, you can access our free, non-judgmental and confidential one-to-one support services by calling 416-781-0479 between 9:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday to Thursday and 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. on Friday. Or email to connect, set up a video call, or make an appointment to visit us in person.

Don’t hesitate to call if you:

  • Are concerned about your safety or the safety of others
  • Are experiencing a problem and aren’t sure how to get help
  • Need assistance to access resources and services such as counselling, housing, legal advice and meeting your basic needs
  • Need help understanding and filling out forms
