​​The Centre for Northern Families is ​home to the Healthy Baby & Toddler Club, an emergency shelter for adult women, a daycare, a walk in clinic, and host to a variety of temporary programs and services initiated by community members and partners.

Operating since 1990 under the governance of the Yellowknife Women's Society, t​he Centre for Northern Families has grown from a designated space for women to discuss women's issues to a place where those women have implemented solid programming and services that address the needs of women and their families in and around our community.​

We endeavour to use harm reduction and trauma informed approaches to provide a safe, tolerant, and non-violent space to those who need it. If you are curious about our programs and services, please check the links in the menu above for more information, or feel free to contact us!
