Since 1930, the YWCA has provided safe, affordable, comfortable housing for low-income women, working professionals, and women in transition who want independent living without the expense of an apartment. In the beginning, the YWCA has two small houses on Church Street for five women in need of housing, thus starting the first supportive affordable housing in the White Plains area. In 1968, the Presbyterian Church donated the Kennedy Duncan Building on North Broadway and the YWCA Residence became a permanent facility. An addition was constructed in 1972 through the generosity of Lila Wallace.

Located at 69 North Broadway in White Plains, the YWCA Residence is home to 193 women and offers both convenience and services. The YWCA completed a two-year, $25 million green renovation that has positioned the Residence as a healthy, energy-efficient facility able to provide residents with enhanced on-site case management, health and wellness programming, and other supportive services.

The renovation has created eight new units of housing as well as upgrades to existing buildings designed to comply with NYSERDA’s Multifamily Performance Program and Enterprise green Communities Criteria. Learn more

Our Stories....

Judith Lundy
“The YWCA Residence has been a lifesaver for me and a lot of the women here. I came to the Y after being burned out of my place. During the past five years I have been able to pursue my dream of obtaining a career in health care, and I am many steps closer to my ultimate goal, being a first time home buyer!”

Aida Vega
“The YWCA Residence has helped me in so many ways. I am disabled, and need to take the best care of myself, now and in the future. The Residence helps me with food from the Emergency Pantry, educational workshops, case management and transportation to doctor appointments. The YWCA gets me out of bed in the morning, and gives me the energy to keep living life.”

Pearl Slaughter
“The YWCA Residence is like a heart with open arms. I was scared and on the verge of homelessness when I came to the Y, and the staff and community made me feel like I was at home. The Residence is a place for everybody, so you make friends with people from all over the world. In my culture, in Hawaii, we never forget the person or place that gives you strength or gives you a helping hand. That is why I feel lucky and privileged to be a part of the YWCA Residence for Women. The Y gave me the strength to figure out my next steps in life.”
