The North End Women’s Centre is a registered non-profit organization that has been providing services to women since 1984. Our center is situated in Winnipeg’s North End in one of the poorest urban communities within Canada. Our Vision of women in charge of their own lives is supported in the programs and services that we provide: Counseling Programs, Addictions & Ongoing Recovery Programs, Housing & Support Programs, Advocacy, Basic Needs Assistance, Children’s Programming, Cultural Programs, Health and Wellness Programs, Volunteer Opportunities, Employment/Barrier Reduction Programs, and Information and Referral Services.
NEWC’s thrift store, The Up Shoppe, relies on new and gently used donations to provide shoppers with merchandise affordable prices. As a program of the North End Women’s Centre the Up Shoppe works to build employment skills in local women while revenue generated is reinvested into our centre and used in programs that help women on their paths of change.
