About YWCA Niagara Region

The goal of YWCA's West Niagara Affordable Housing program is to provide transitional supportive housing to all of West Niagara, which will lead individuals to self-sufficiency within the time frame of one to three years.


Together with our partners, we provide supportive programming and housing solutions to individuals who are committed to attaining self-sufficiency. Our partners include community organizations, individuals, service providers and the faith community as well as residential clients.


Join the only Coldest Night of the Year event in West Niagara. Walk with us.
