housing support

YWCA Golden Gate Silicon Valley is on a mission to achieve solutions for survivors facing homelessness by providing rapid re-housing services for women, children and families and ensuring pathways from shelter to stability.

Safe, affordable housing is the foundation for healing, empowerment and success.

YWCA Golden Gate Silicon Valley housing team works from a Housing First model and focuses on client empowerment. In addition to providing temporary financial assistance, participants in our housing programs work closely with a housing specialist to mitigate any barriers and secure housing in the community. Participants also collaborate with a housing advocate on long-term personal and financial goals, including a plan for maintaining their housing after the program subsidy ends.

YWCA Golden Gate Silicon Valley’s Housing Department is part of the Santa Clara County Continuum of Care and accepts referrals through the County’s confidential coordinated system. For more information on our housing services and how to enroll, speak with your YWCA advocate or contact our support line at
