Transitional Housing
Residential Housing:

This program, which began in 1912, provides safe, affordable, dormitory style rental housing for low-income single women, 18 years and older.

We offer the following services:

42 rooms, 18 beds are designated for transitional residents
All rooms are furnished -- including linens and utilities
Safe, comfortable, smoke-free atmosphere
On-site community kitchen with a food pantry
Dormitory style baths and laundry facilities
Lounges with cable television
Activities including monthly birthday dinners and holiday parties
At this time rent is $60 a week or $260 per month. All residents must work or have some form of income. We will work with residents to help them locate the community resources they need. Most importantly, we strive to teach our residents to prioritize in order to build a better life. We often say "pay your rent first," because you need a place to live before you can have anything else. If you or someone you know is interested in housing at the YW, please contact us.
