Integrate Services

While the Women’s Institute focuses on permanent housing development with complementary supportive services, we also have extensive experience in transitional housing projects as well as rental and homeownership-based projects. We have built emergency shelters for domestic violence survivors, transitional housing for individuals recovering from substance abuse, housing that is structured to be affordable to the lowest-income families (those earning less than 50% of Area Median Income), and housing that responds to the changing needs of individuals living with HIV/AIDS, allowing them to remain in the same housing as their health needs evolve.

The Women’s Institute is a mission-driven developer deeply committed to serving vulnerable populations through a service-enriched housing model – prioritizing the economic stability needs of the adults and children who live in our properties in addition to our bricks-and-mortar development of affordable housing units. Through our work, we seek to ensure that low-income people throughout our region have the opportunity to live in quality housing that is affordable within their household budgets, and also have access to services and supports to achieve economic stability for their families.
