The YWCA Niagara Region partners with West Niagara Affordable Housing (YWCA WNAH) to provide transitional supportive housing to individuals or families within West Niagara. The goal of YWCA WNAH is to lead individuals to self-sufficiency within the time frame of one to three years.
Our goal is to provide temporary relief through housing allowances for persons who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Through their transition, participants work with skilled staff to set goals that will lead to more independence. YWCA WNAH also provides residents with skills development training, support, goalsetting, advocacy and referrals to other programs and services that might be of benefit, such as employment supports, counselling and legal aid. Those in residence have the opportunity to rebuild their lives.

Are You a Landlord?
YWCA WNAH maintains a waiting list of clients in need of affordable housing. We are looking for landlords who are willing to work with us to provide rental housing for these individuals and families.
When you lease your property to us you will have a secure tenancy with secured rent being paid directly to you by YWCA WNAH according to the tenancy agreement. The lease between YWCA WNAH and the landlord is retained in a traditional landlord-tenant relationship. Even if a client becomes ineligible to participate in the housing program or if the apartment is vacant, we still pay the negotiated rent as agreed in the lease.
Our current landlords enjoy peace of mind and cost savings with reduced advertising and vacancy costs, as well as saving valuable time. If you are interested in working with us through our landlord program please contact us.
