YWCA Lethbridge & District has been a staple in Southern Alberta for more than 60 years, continuing to grow and respond to the needs of the community. Housing, homelessness, poverty, domestic and sexual violence, volunteerism, youth empowerment, leadership and a place to belong are all addressed at YWCA.
