Since 1989, YWCA WNY has provided housing and supportive service programming for homeless women, 18 years of age or older, and their children. Our four housing units are scatter-sites located in the Town of Amherst.

YWCA WNY’s Housing Services provides a safe environment for homeless women to gain the life skills necessary for a stable future, and to overcome the trauma and inter-related issues associated with poverty, homelessness, and domestic violence. YWCA WNY’s Housing Services empowers women by providing stable housing and supportive services, working with clients to eliminate the barriers that prevent them from achieving self-sufficiency and securing stable housing, the primary goals for all program participants.

YWCA’s Housing Services provides comprehensive solutions for high need, high acuity homeless women and their families.
