The YWCA Housing Program is a housing program with supportive services intended to promote healing, and achieve economic and personal self-sufficiency.  Leaving an abusive relationship means sudden homelessness for many domestic violence survivors and their children, which takes time to overcome. 

In partnership with the Pierce County Housing Authority, YWCA offers long-term affordable housing and time to rebuild self-sufficiency. The YWCA housing program provides a wide range of flexible and individualized services that reflect the differences and specific needs of survivors and their dependent children, with a focus on self-determination and supporting each person to choose the course of action is best for their family.  Participants set specific goals to meet individual family needs while benefiting from ongoing support and connection to resources that build long-term self-sufficiency.  The housing program offers services such as safety planning, advocacy, case management, and referrals for counseling, employment, child care, legal assistance, support groups, and more.

If you are in need of emergency shelter, please contact the YWCA's 24-hour hotline at 253-383-2593 or crisis@ywcapiercecounty.org
