The YWCA has been very wonderful for me and my family. It has lifted a big weight off my shoulders and has allowed me to focus more on myself, my future and my finances.
YWCA’s Families Together (FT) program provides safe housing for families with minor children in Charlotte.
Built in 2008, Families Together consists of 10 townhouses located on YWCA’s Park Road campus. Our program provides safe, affordable housing and intensive support services for homeless families with minor children. 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. Each family can remain in the program for up to 18 months.
In 2017, Families Together extended its reach in the community by partnering with Renaissance West Community Initiative (RWCI), a mixed income community in Charlotte. YWCA has two staff members on site who provide case management to the 65 families enrolled in Charlotte Housing Authority's Family Self-Sufficiency program. They are also available to aid the senior citizens who call Renaissance West home.
Participation in our program is by referral from our partner agencies only.
