Affordable Housing

As a service within the homelessness sector, YWCA Canberra has become increasingly concerned about decreasing affordability of housing within the ACT and the impact of this on homelessness, particularly for older women. As a result we are actively working to expand the ways in which we can respond to this issue and provide support to those at risk of homelessness.

YWCA Canberra owns three affordable housing properties, Lady Heydon House and two Eclipse Apartments, and manages Betty Searle House, providing a total of 15 tenancies in Canberra for women.
