In 1908, the YMCA in Downtown Edmonton had 13 bedrooms and served single young men, mostly newcomers to the city. Today our four-floor housing facility has more than 100 rooms and still serves young men just getting on their feet. In addition, we also serve women and families and can accommodate up to 120 individuals at one time.
Some stay only for a night or two while traveling through Edmonton, others may stay a few months while they look for on-going employment and permanent housing. Many of our short-term residents are looking for a place to recover and collect themselves after a crisis situation. The community they find here helps give them the support they need to get their lives back together after a job loss, family break-up or sudden relocation. By collaborating closely with other agencies, community and government services, our Housing Team is committed to enhancing our programs that help people make the transition to a more self-sufficient lifestyle.
