About Central Station

Central Station is a community centre in the heart of Winkler, serving both the city of Winkler as well as surrounding rural communities in the RM of Stanley. We are a hub that connects community members who are marginalized, disadvantaged, and new to the community with resources needed to meet basic necessities of life. We have a drop-in space, open Monday-Friday, and offer a variety of programs year-round. We work collaboratively with the Winkler & District Food Cupboard and host Cafe 545 Community Meal weekly, as we believe food brings people together! Central Station also manages our community’s 90 affordable homes, advocating for and supporting our tenants physically and emotionally.
