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, dresser, and lamp. All rooms have a closet, sink and ceiling fan. 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.
Women with an income under $17,000 are eligible to apply, and preference is given to women 55 and older. Utilities (water, garbage, gas and electricity) are included in the rent. Residents may have a phone in their room at their own expense.
Monthly Rent: $420
Total Move-in Cost: $870*
*If you move in after the first of the month, the first month’s rent will be pro-rated at the rate of $14.00 a day.
