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 Grange Street Burnaby
YWCA Grange Street Burnaby

We are partnering with Qualex-Landmark Orchard Limited Partnership to provide 32 new two-and-three-bedroom units in the heart of Burnaby. In an excellent location close to Metrotown, grocery stores, library, Central Park and transit, this new YWCA housing community will provide much-needed housing units for low- and moderate-income single mothers and their children in the community.

YWCA units will be in a five-storey building and will include an amenity space, a children’s play area and communal laundry facilities with the option for residents to add laundry machines to their units. Residents will also have access to YWCA resources such as child care, legal education and employment services.

We are embarking on a capital campaign and have raised 23% of our $11.7M goal. We are actively seeking donors to raise the $9 million. Should you be interested in making a donation, or being a lead donor who could name this new housing project, please contact Bobbi Sarai at 604 418.2225 | bsarai@ywcavan.org

YWCA Richmond Project

We are partnering with Keltic Development to provide 27 affordable homes for women and their children in the heart of Richmond. Priority will be given to those who are leaving violence from an intimate partner and women aged 55+.

Residents will have full access to all building amenities within the four-tower complex and to YWCA resources such as child care, legal supports and employment services. 

This is an incredible opportunity for the YWCA to purchase units at an average price of $118,000/unit in a municipality where the average price of an apartment is $683,200.   Please help us say yes to this incredible opportunity to create affordable housing for low-income families.

We have raised 87% of our $5.9M campaign, but we urgently need to raise the final $789K by the project's completion in November 2021.
