Since 1930, the YWCA has provided safe, affordable comfortable housing for low-income women, working professionals, and women in transition who want independent living without the expense of an apartment.  

Women who choose to make their home at the YWCA reflect the richness of diversity represented by their color, race, age, nationality, sexual orientation, ethnicity, disability, recovery and life experience.  You have a unique opportunity to know and learn from women with varied interests and customs.  Living together requires that everyone show and receive respect and consideration at all times.

Supportive services at the residence:

  • Case Management
  • My Sister’s Closet
  • Food Pantry
  • Employment Services
  • Health Screenings

This location offers the Awakening program, which is one year transitional housing program for women who are formerly incarcerated or who had some issues with the law and who have a substance abuse history.
