Housing Support

Transitional Housing Services

The YWCA Transitional Housing program is designed to provide individuals and families with the interim stability and support to successfully move to and maintain permanent housing while receiving accompanying supportive services. It allows individuals time to work toward stability, education and employment while continuing to heal from the traumatic experience of domestic violence and homelessness. Our goal is to assist individuals who complete the program in achieving two primary goals - increased income and transition into permanent housing. 


Rapid Re-Housing Services

The YWCA Rapid Re-Housing Program provides services to survivors of domestic violence (individuals and families) through advocacy, intervention, and support. The program works to move individual families from our emergency shelter to safe, stable, permanent housing within an average of 39 days or less. Within the two years that this program has been available at the YWCA, we have assisted a total of 58 heads of household, exceeding our target goal both years.
