Ground-breaking new program offers emergency reproductive care for women and gender-diverse people experiencing homelessness

A new program at YWCA Hamilton is helping to support women and gender-diverse people in need of emergency reproductive care.
Thanks to a grant from the Shoppers Foundation for Women’s Health, YWCA Hamilton has dedicated three beds within our Transitional Living Program to people experiencing homelessness who are pregnant, who have had or who are seeking an abortion, who have experienced pregnancy loss, or who need emergency reproductive care.

Med student volunteers help connect the community to Carole Anne’s Place

Sitting down to talk with McMaster medical students Etri Kocaqi and Nam Do will make you want to roll up your sleeves and throw yourself into volunteering. Their enthusiasm for community service is infectious.

Along with fellow student Danya Sanderson, Etri and Nam are co-chairs of the Mac Med volunteering group, a student-led initiative to volunteer with housing service providers in the Hamilton area and build connections in the community. As part of our celebration of National Volunteer Week, we sat down with Etri and Nam to hear about their experiences volunteering with YWCA Hamilton at Carole Anne’s Place (CAP).
