Supportive Housing


We Provide Individual Clean, safe apartments for homeless or formerly homeless women and their dependent children. Empowering women in supportive housing programs to live independent, healthy lives.

YWCA housing gives over 500 women the stability, support and resources while they are in recovery. They are able to build their confidence and life skills to transform to independence in the community. Because of the YWCA, women are able to take away the stress of “Where will I sleep?” Women will be taken out of dangerous living situations and given a new start in life.

The Bridge Program:

An innovative housing approach focusing on mothers in recovery who have given birth to babies addicted to opioids or other illegal substances.
