YWCA's housing program offers emergency shelter for women and transitional housing for women and women with children. Emogene's provides a safe and secure place to stay while women work towards becoming self-sufficient. Emogene's Emergency Homeless Shelter is available for up to 90 days. Shelter guests are required to set goals unique to their success and must work toward reaching those goals during their stay. Once stable, they are able to apply for transitional housing where they have more independence.
New Bridges Transitional Housing program serves women and women with children for one year and seeks to provide assistance between the emergency shelter and permanent housing. These individuals must be stable, have some financial income, and be drug free. Case management, job training, and educational services are available to them as they work towards obtaining permanent housing.
