YWKW (YW Kitchener-Waterloo) (www.ywkw.ca) has been dedicated to women and their families for over a century. YWKW "works to improve the lives of women and girls by offering early learning and care; before- and after-school programs; newcomer support; youth development; emergency, supportive, and affordable housing; entrepreneurship and employment training; and collaborative community leadership." YWKW envisions "an equitable world where women, families, youth, and children thrive in inclusive communities"

SASCWR (Sexual Assault Support Centre Waterloo Region) (www.sascwr.org) Since 1989 the SASCWR has been transforming lives in our community. SASCWR offers free, wrap-around services and support to people and their families who have experienced sexual violence. They envision "a world without sexual violence and oppression"

CJI (Community Justice Initiatives) (www.cjiwr.com) is a non-profit organization known world-wide for starting the first modern Restorative Justice program. "Restorative Justice is a way of addressing conflict and crime that engages the person who caused the harm, people who were affected by the harm, and the community." CJI envisions "connected, peaceful communities where all conflict is resolved in a restorative way."
