I have an entire new outlook on all things. My health, my up keep, my life. I am happier than I have been in years. I am back!
Our Women In Transition (WIT) program provides safe housing for single, unaccompanied women in Charlotte.
Since 1996, YWCA has operated the WIT program, an essential part of the continuum of care for women experiencing homelessness. With safe, affordable housing and comprehensive support services in a non-clinical setting, we support women while they gain the skills and resources necessary to attain and maintain permanent housing long-term.
Our program is a month-to-month lease where participants pay rent and stay a maximum of 18 months (average stay is 12-13 months). As part of the program, participants have access to services including: case management; computer instruction; career counseling; financial planning services, educational workshops, access to our fitness center and social activities.
Participation in our program is by referral from our partner agencies only. Referrals come from sources such as emergency and domestic violence shelters, substance abuse treatment programs, hospitals, and mental health facilities. YWCA also participates in Coordinated Assessment.
