Finding secure, affordable accommodation can be a problem – particularly for young women leaving home and spreading their wings. Whether they are students needing, young women employed in the cities or visiting other cities for training, employment or holiday purposes, THE YW provides a caring home away from home.
Founded in Cape Town in 1886 THE YW has a long history of providing safe, comfortable and affordable accommodation. We are an interdenominational non-profit making organization providing accommodation in a Christian atmosphere. We believe in nurturing young women – the homemakers and role models of the future. It is these girls who will shape the values and ideals of coming generations. If they enter into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, their influence can be far-reaching, apart from helping them to set a sound and godly example to their partners and future families.
Students in particular will find our residences exceptionally conducive to studying as they provide a safe and quiet atmosphere, even though situated in the midst of the largest South African cities. We have residences in Bloemfontein, Cape Town and Pietermaritzburg.
