CHW Calgary Bat-Yam Women’s Centre

The CHW Calgary Women’s Bat Yam Centre was established in the mid-1940s and began its activities by giving home classes for the local women. As it developed, different classes were added, such as activities for young mothers and for the elderly, legal support for women, and a support group for single mothers.

Today, the Calgary Bat-Yam Women’s Centre continues to offers many different activities and programs to a broader population in the Bat-Yam area.

Among others, the activities that take place at the centre are:

  • Golden Age Group
  • Lectures and field trips for the elderly
  • Play room for Ethiopian mothers and their children
  • After school therapy
