Our Centre

Re-imagining support, services and advocacy for women experiencing violence.

Our new, secure, fully accessible 24,000 square foot complex consists of two distinct but linked buildings. This welcoming, evidence-based design is a first for anti-violence shelters in Canada.

The new Anne Marie D'Amico
Community Collective

offers wrap around services to women within the North York community who have or are experiencing violence.

Emergency Shelter

Our 17-room shelter provides
women, their children and
even pets with a dignified
residential experience.

"Something that I love about the North York Women’s Shelter is how you are treated as an individual. It is not that you are a woman who is passing through and is having difficult times. They actually have that connection with women and children and throughout my 5 months I have experienced a million times. When I would just ask for help or support in any way and it would be given including my choices from immigration to housing, to education and finances. Everything, like whatever I needed."
