YWCA Regina has provided a safe place for women and families experiencing domestic violence for more over 40 years at the Isabel Johnson Shelter. Our long-term commitment is to prevent gender-based violence, to break the cycle that perpetuates violence, and to work toward a violence-free community. The programs and services that we provide address both the need for immediate intervention and for long-term preventative work.
The Isabel Johnson Shelter is a safe place to stay while you work through future plans and a place to turn to by phone if you need someone to talk to about the abuse you’ve experienced. Our services are confidential and free of charge. To set up your stay, or for support and guidance by phone, call 306-525-2141 and ask to speak to a shelter worker.
If you are a woman who needs to flee a violent or abusive situation, then you are eligible to stay, with or without children, without charge. When you call us, the staff member you talk to will ask some questions about your situation and will let you know whether there is space available or not. If Isabel Johnson Shelter is currently full, they will suggest other options for you and do everything possible to support you in finding a safe alternative.
