While the Housing and Homelessness Programs offer a continuum of housing options, the programs provide more than housing assistance. With a focus on the establishment of well-defined goals and objectives, women and men are offered an opportunity to break the cycle of homelessness and achieve self-sufficiency. The following housing options are coordinated by the YWCA: 30-day Emergency Shelter, Transitional and Bridge Housing, Single Room Occupancy, and Permanent Housing for Persons with Disabilities. The primary population is homeless women and women with children. Additionally, we assist homeless veterans in securing housing. While enrolled in the long-term housing programs, individuals are assigned case managers, and are expected to participate in life skills classes.
