This is an excellent shelter, with many programs available for different needs.
The YWCA Dayton operates Montgomery County's only shelter for victims of domestic violence. In addition, we co-sponsor and staff the 24-hour Domestic Violence Hotline. Our confidential services are available 24-hours a day, 365 days a year, free of charge to victims, their friends and family members, and other professionals.
24-Hour Domestic Violence Hotline 937-222-SAFE
Our shelter provides a full range of services to help women on the road to self-sufficiency. These services include crisis intervention, case management, individual advocacy, individual and group counseling, support and educational groups, goal planning, referrals, children's programs and basic material needs.
The HomeShare program provides transitional/supportive housing and social services to homeless women and their children while they gain training and education toward self-sufficiency. The HomeShare program is much more than temporary shelter. Those accepted into the program must be willing to work hard toward goals and accomplishments that will improve their ability to gain living wage employment. These goals may include attending college or training and/or apprenticeship programs.
Single Room Occupancy (SRO)
The SRO program provides permanent housing and social services to single women while they gain employment and build toward self-sufficiency. Permanent housing is provided depending on a woman's need and eligibility for rental subsidy.
