Project Description

The YWCA of Salt Lake City expansion involved the construction of a new domestic violence shelter and a transitional housing facility for homeless women on the grounds of the organization’s downtown campus. The first phase of a major expansion designed to revamp the YWCA’s existing facilities in order to enhance the impact of its services and provide both the space and resources to conduct more outreach into the community. The 150-bed, 23,000 sq. ft. Crisis Shelter doubles the YWCA’s current capacity to shelter and serve survivors of domestic violence, and the 12-room, 6,500 square-foot Residence for Women and Children provides transitional housing for single, homeless women and their children. Both buildings replaced existing YWCA facilities, and the vacated space was used to enhance other activities, including outreach and education, women’s leadership and development, and research and public policy work. The campus expansion also created additional program space as well as a ground-floor parking garage.
