A 32-bed emergency shelter with supportive services for survivors of intimate partner violence and sexual assault and their minor children.
The YWCA SafeHouse offers short-term emergency housing (average 60 days) for survivors and their minor children. Upon making contact with the YWCA, an advocate will conduct an assessment with each potential resident to ensure the needs of the survivor match the services provided at SafeHouse. For individuals with needs requiring other supportive housing services, referrals are made.
During their stay, residents are encouraged to engage with the resources and services designed to assist them with planning for the future. While at SafeHouse, residents are part of a community—sharing a kitchen, lounges, and other communal spaces. Residents also work with advocates to identify and access the financial, health, housing, and legal resources that will advance their pursuit of safe, independent living.
Services and Resources Include:
Crisis Intervention and Support Group
Referrals to Community Resources
Personal Advocacy and Positive Support
Access to programs offered through the Women's Empowerment Center including, parenting workshops, financial literacy sessions, and other empowerment-based programs.
Residents are expected to follow community expectations and standards outlined in the Welcome Packet upon admission to the shelter. The use or possession of alcohol or illegal drugs on the property of the YWCA Greater Flint is prohibited.
