A Message from our Executive Director:

During the COVID-19 Virus Pandemic, health and wellness is a priority for everyone. The YWCA delivers a number of programs for children, families and individuals within St. Thomas and Elgin County at various facilities. We are actively monitoring the situation and recommendations of Public Health agencies as they are made available and are working to determine next steps accordingly and also based on access to facilities.

Registration for programming continues to be available and we appreciate your ongoing patience during this time. As with any program cancellations and/or closures, we aim to give as much notice as possible to anyone affected. Notifications and updates will be posted here on our website and social media, posted at facilities wherever possible and we will also make every attempt to contact registrants based on contact information provided.

Please continue to watch for updates.
