YWCA Housing Richmond
How You Can Help

Support Our Housing Initiatives

We need your help to build new housing communities that will provide safe, affordable and supportive homes for senior women and single mothers and their children. 

YWCA Richmond Project
YWCA No. 3 Road Richmond

We are partnering with Keltic Development to provide 27 affordable units in the heart of Richmond. Studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom units will be available for single mothers and their children and for single women without dependents. Priority will be given to those who are leaving violence from an intimate partner, older adults whose children have aged out of YWCA housing and those who wish to stay in the community.  

This new YWCA housing community is within walking distance to the Canada Line Brighouse SkyTrain station and close to Richmond Centre, grocery stores, Richmond Public Library, Richmond General Hospital and plenty of green spaces. Residents will also have full access to all building amenities within the four-tower complex. Residents will also have access to YWCA resources such as child care, legal supports and employment services. 

We have raised 58% of our $5.9M campaign to build the YWCA Richmond Project and are seeking a lead donor to help us name this new housing community.
