YW Homes, Inc.
In January of 1999, YWCA Greater Pittsburgh formed YW Homes, Inc., a non-profit subsidiary corporation with the goal of providing affordable housing choices for those who need it – whether or not they have section 8 vouchers. YWCA took on this mission in response to the lack of affordable housing opportunities in Allegheny County; the increasing racial segregation of Allegheny County communities brought to light by the Sanders Consent Decree; and the lack of housing choice in neighborhoods with quality schools, diverse populations, and access to transportation and jobs for low to moderate income families.
YW Homes consists of ten single-family homes that are located in the first tier suburban communities of Swissvale, Edgewood, Ingram, Baldwin, and Brentwood.
