YWCA Greater Harrisburg's Housing and Homeless Programs offer a continuum of housing options, but the programs provide more than housing assistance; they focus on the establishment of well-defined goals and objectives. The YWCA offers women - and men - an opportunity to break the cycle of homelessness in order to achieve self sufficiency. The following housing options are coordinated by the YWCA: 30-day Emergency Shelter, Transitional and Bridge Housing, Single Room Occupancy, and Permanent Housing for Persons with Disabilities. The primary population is homeless women and women with children. Additionally, we assist homeless veterans in securing housing. While enrolled in the long-term housing programs, individuals are assigned case managers, and are expected to particpiate in life skills classes, that include, but are not limited to housing options, finances, employment, self care, parenting and recovery.
