YWCA’s Longer Term Housing for Survivors

Bridges, YWCA’s longer term housing program, enables survivors to secure the economic resources and longer-term supports to achieve stable and sustainable futures.

Bridges deepens YWCA’s impact, by helping even more women and children move beyond surviving – to thriving!  Bridges provides residents with:

  • Trauma-informed counseling for survivors
  • Workforce training and employment assistance
  • Permanent housing support
  • Financial education and legal assistance
  • Early-intervention and trauma-informed therapies for children
  • Health care referrals

Bridges residents live in a 15-unit apartment building, with one and two bedroom apartments which can accommodate up to 52 women and children.

For more information, contact Hillary Douin, our Director of Domestic Violence at 847-864-8445.

Bridges: More Time. Mores Support. Renewed Hope.
