YWCA Home at Last consists of 54 rental units of permanent supportive housing in a single building. The development was a new construction on a .65-acre lot located at 406 Broadway, which is located directly across the street from the YWCA’s current headquarters facility. YWCA Home at Last contains a range of studio, one, two, and three-bedroom units at 30% and 50% AMI. The sponsor, YWCA Pierce County, has devoted over a century to creating opportunity and safety for adults and children in the greater Tacoma area. The organization serves over 15,000 adults and children annually, and this project, provides a full continuum of services, from crisis intervention to shelter and then permanent housing. This project completes this continuum by aligning the totality of the YWCA’s residential services with the long-term stability needs of clients. Having a safe and affordable place to live, where there is time to rest and heal, and where clients can have a stable foundation from which to rebuild their lives after experiencing trauma is what this project provides to the organization and to the mission.
