Housing

Providing safe, affordable housing.

Over 25 years ago, YWCA Greater Pittsburgh initiated the country’s first transitional housing program for women dealing with abuse and homelessness. Today, we work through Allegheny Link to provide rapid re-housing and transitional housing to help individuals and families achieve self-sufficiency.

We also offer affordable housing options for low-income families who meet income criteria through our subsidiary, YW Homes, Inc.

PLEASE NOTE: All requests for supportive housing must go through Allegheny Link. YWCA Greater Pittsburgh is not able to accept direct housing requests.

For general information about our housing programs, please contact Sarah Dittoe at (412) 255-1292.

Following Governor Wolf’s directive, YWCA Greater Pittsburgh’s operations remain largely virtual.  As we adapt to our modified schedule, appointments are required.  Our Homewood-Brushton Early Child Development Center is open, with special precautions in place to limit the spread of COVID-19. Our Pre-K Counts classrooms in Homewood and Braddock Hills will open in the fall. Click here to view our family welcome packet for more information.
