Since 1959, the YMCA has provided clean, safe and affordable transitional housing for more than 170 men in Hamilton’s urban core. 

The YMCA Men’s Residence supports men at risk, many facing both health and social challenges. Short-term accommodations are provided on a weekly or monthly basis with 24-hour front desk support, including navigation to critical community support services with key partner agencies.
Amidst the current COVID-19 crisis, the YMCA continues to provide safe and affordable housing for this vulnerable population.

As the holidays approach and we face the second wave of the pandemic, the need to support our most vulnerable community members is greater than ever before. We are looking to provide food security for the 174 at-risk men living in transitional housing in our YMCA Men's Residence.

You can help support vulnerable men in our community by making a gift to the YMCA.
