Housing support

YWCA Canberra has a long history in providing housing support to women and their families. We currently provide supported accommodation services on behalf of the ACT Government and are a registered community housing provider.

Our Housing Support Unit provides the following services:

  • Affordable housing – providing affordable housing for older women in the Canberra community
  • Transitional housing – providing supported accommodation for women and their families who are at risk of homelessness
  • Outreach – prevention of homelessness through outreach services
  • Supportive Tenancy Service – working with ACT residents whose housing is at risk, to maintain a safe and stable home.


The Housing Support Unit is open 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday.
