YWCA Banff has been offering self-contained isolation spaces to people in need of a safe place to isolate or quarantine since March.
The YWCA isolation program offers eight dedicated units equipped with private washrooms as well as small kitchen appliances like a mini-fridge and crock-pot. The program includes overnight accommodation for a 14 night period, with daily wellness checks to support mental health and wellness, connection to counsellors and support services, and access to three prepared meals a day.
As the pandemic continues, YWCA Banff remains committed to supporting the community. To find out more information or to access the program, contact us at 403-760-3200 or Support@YWCABanff.ca.
This program has been made possible with funding from the Banff Canmore Community Foundation, Wim & Nancy Pauw Foundation, United Way, Town of Banff, and Alberta Rural Development Network.
