Residential Housing for Women

Residential Housing for Women

In Sacramento, the YWCA carries on a century-old tradition of providing women a safe, comfortable place to live. As many as 32 low-income, single women call the YWCA on 17th Street, not far from the Capitol, home. Each has her room furnished with a twin bed and dresser. All rooms have a closet, sink and ceiling fan with their own heat/air conditioner. There are both communal and private baths and a communal kitchen. A shared living room is a place to watch TV, play cards and chat. In good weather, residents enjoy the enclosed courtyard and garden. Laundry facilities are available on site.

From its midtown location, the YWCA offers convenient access to public transit. Residents can walk to nearby drug and grocery stores.

Women with an income under $20,000 are eligible to apply, and preference is given to women 55 and older or who are currently homeless. Utilities (water, garbage, gas and electricity) are included in the rent. Residents may have a phone and cable TV in their room at their own expense.
