YWCA Canberra has provided housing support to women and the broader Canberra community for more than 60 years, commencing with the opening of Leave House in Mort St by Lady Gowrie in 1942.
Today we provide supported accommodation services on behalf of the ACT Government and are a registered housing provider (Tier 3) under the National Regulatory System for Community Housing. We have established policies and procedures to effectively manage a multifaceted housing service, delivering on all reporting obligations and funding requirements.
Our housing team provides the following services:
Next Door – Housing and support services for older women experiencing or at risk of experiencing homelessness
Rentwell – our charitable property management service
Community housing – YWCA and privately owned accommodation for people in need
Transitional housing – supported accommodation for women and their families who are at risk of homelessness
Outreach – preventing homelessness through outreach services
Supportive Tenancy Service – providing advocacy and support for people whose tenancy is at risk, or who need support to secure a tenancy
Our team are available from 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday.
