YWCA’s rent-geared-to-income housing community provides safe, accessible homes for women-led families who have been impacted by gender-based violence.
We offer 40 townhouse units to women and children who could benefit from permanent housing. Our 1, 2, 3, and 4 bedroom units are restricted by our lease to women-led households only and are smoke free.
Our on-site Transition Support Worker provides women and their children with ongoing access to longer term support, as well as youth engagement programming.
