YWE CHOOSE Action
What We Do
Family and community empowerment is enhanced by fulfillment of a very basic need – housing. YWCA Central Alabama’s Community Housing Program helps families and individuals meet that need. We provide low-cost, low-rent housing options. We implement measures to make our residents feel safe and secure.
Our quality housing and supportive programming is offered to Central Alabama women, children and families. YWCA Community Housing considers it a privilege to help those we serve to uphold their dignity while pursuing a life of stability and independence.
We work every day to ensure equal and fair access to a variety of temporary and permanent housing choices to accommodate multiple needs.
YWCA Central Alabama’s Rosedale senior housing initiative in Homewood and YWoodlawn project to revitalize the Woodlawn neighborhood are two unique features of YWCA Central Alabama’s housing inventory.
Rosedale is part of the YW’s continuum of residential programs for older adults and people with disabilities.
YWoodlawn is a collaborative empowerment initiative intended to reduce poverty and fuel hope. Right at the community’s doorstep is YWCA Family Resource Center and YWCA’s Interfaith Hospitality House.
