Since 1886, we have provided affordable housing for women in transition. Today, the historic Griswold Building in downtown Columbus is home to more than 100 low-income women at any given time—many who are beginning their first jobs; recovering from drug-related, alcohol-related, and mental illnesses; or pursuing their education.
how it works
We provide housing for single women over 18 who are formerly homeless and struggling with mental illness, as well as low-income women over 18.
Beyond offering them a safe place to stay, we work with each resident to create an individualized plan for personal and professional growth. With programs ranging from addiction counseling to GED tutoring, our goal is to help residents become healthier, better able to contribute to the community, and better prepared to attain and retain employment.
If you're a woman in need of housing and would like information about our Women's Residency programs, contact the Property Manager at 614.224.9121, ext. 1270.
