YWCA Warren unveils new housing

Posted: Updated:
WARREN, Ohio -
YWCA Warren marks the beginning of its renewed effort to support women and children in need with a ribbon cutting celebration.
The new Warren Permanent Supportive Housing building that boasts 12 apartments for women and their families who are homeless, or on the verge of becoming homeless, was unveiled Thursday. 
Women who have a disability that hinders their ability to live independently will be eligible to receive specialized care to help them avoid homelessness. 
Executive Director Kenya Roberts-Howard said the YWCA looked at a study about housing and the growing need in Trumbull County before building. 
The $2.1 million facility off of North Park Avenue is an addition that replaces the former Wean swimming pool. 
The housing is aimed at transforming the YWCA into a community hub that connects women and young people to the resources they need.
Construction of the apartments was a group effort with support from the Warren-Trumbull HOME Consortium, the Corporation for Supportive Housing, the Ohio Housing Finance Agency, the Federal Home Loan Bank of Cincinnati, the Rotary Club of Warren and Huntington Bank.
