New Apartments on Talbot Street

This is an incredible opportunity for our current residents to take the next step to independent living. You, our community, were outstanding with your donations. We can’t thank you enough. 

 

If you are interested in making a donation to these new units please feel free to reach out to our Director of Housing. Donations must be pre-approved by our Director of Housing, Jeannette Singh. For more information please call Jeannette at (519) 631-9800 or via email at jsingh@ywcaste.ca
