Housing & Supportive Services

YWCA St. Paul combats homelessness by providing affordable housing and housing-related services for families experiencing homelessness. More than simply providing a place to live, our programs and services empower families to stabilize their lives, build new skills, decrease their utilization of emergency services and keep their families united and safe.

Core Programs & Services Include:

Rapid Re-Housing

Reduces the length of emergency shelter stays by providing a jump-start of supportive services and other resources that empower families to move out of shelters and into stable housing.

Transitional Housing Program

Creates a path out of homelessness for single parents and their children. Families spend up to 24 months building skills and stabilizing their lives while living in one of the three YWCA St. Paul Transitional Housing sites.

Permanent Supportive Housing

Combines safe, affordable housing and supportive services to help families who have experienced long-term homelessness to build stable, healthy lives.
