Support our new housing projects

Give women and their children a safe place to call home.

We need your help to build new housing communities that will provide safe, affordable and supportive housing for low-income single mothers and their children.

YWCA May Brown Place (formerly YWCA St. Georges)

We are partnering with Chard Development Ltd. to provide 14 two- and three-bedroom units of affordable housing in the City of North Vancouver. YWCA units will be located on the third and fourth floors of the 22-storey building and will include an outdoor space and an amenity room for the exclusive use of YWCA residents. In an excellent location near Lonsdale Avenue and close to the City of North Vancouver Library, green spaces, grocery stores and produce markets, this new YWCA housing community will provide much-needed housing units for low and moderate-income single mothers and their children in the community. Residents will also have access to YWCA resources such as child care, legal education and employment services.

We have raised 99% of our $5.861M capital and endowment campaign to build YWCA May Brown Place.

YWCA No. 3 Road Richmond

We are partnering with Keltic Development on a new housing project to provide 27 affordable units in the heart of Richmond's community. For the first time, studio and one-bedroom units will be available alongside our usual offering of two- and three-bedroom units. In addition to serving single mothers and their children, we will be opening this new housing community to single women without dependents. Priority will be given to those who are fleeing violence from an intimate partner, seniors with children who aged out of housing and those who wish to stay in the community. This new YWCA housing community is walking distance to the Canada Line Brighouse SkyTrain station and conveniently close to Richmond Centre, grocery stores, Richmond Public Library, Richmond General Hospital, play areas and plenty of green spaces. Residents will also have full access to all building amenities within the four-tower complex. 

We are embarking on a capital campaign to raise $5.9M, and are actively seeking donors to join us in making this housing a reality.
