YWCA Banff – Hope for the Holidays

Give the gift of hope this holiday season
For many of us, the holidays are a beautiful time to connect with family and friends. For people experiencing violence and abuse, the holidays can present added challenges to seeking safety amidst financial and social pressures. ⁠

The Hope for the Holidays raffle runs from November 26 – December 20th, 2021. Give a Gift of Hope holiday cards can be sent to your loved ones throughout the holiday season. Learn how you can support at https://ywcabanff.ca/get-involved/hope-for-the-holidays/

All money raised through our Hope for the Holidays campaign will go to support all essential programs and critical operations.

“I was jobless, homeless and really anxious about what was going to happen next. Staying in my car is ok but it can get pretty cold at night and access to showers can be complicated with COVID. I feel blessed and grateful to have had the chance to stay at the YWCA Banff! Now I feel more ready, restful and have a better idea of what is good for me and what my next actions should be to get better. I am resourceful, but sometimes, asking for help is the right thing to do, and I’m glad I did.”
