We are on a mission to advance

YWCA Houston works in partnership with the community to create a healthy and sustainable environment for individuals and families. If you are single, a single parent with children, or a two-parent family, you may be eligible for the YWCA’s income-based permanent housing which offers one, two-and three-bedroom apartments. YWCA Houston provides furnishings, rental assistance, utility deposits, and the necessary security deposits to rebuild a home to young adults ages 18-24.

Our Housing Process

The YWCA uses the evidence-based Transition to Independence Process (TIP) Model for youth and young adults to help residents achieve their individual self-sufficiency goals.

YWCA uses the principles of Housing First and has developed client-centered services to prepare residents for housing stability, independent living, and self-sufficiency. The Women and Children’s Project rents 21 scattered site units with a capacity of about 31 beds total (for 16 single adults and 5 families with one or more children).
