YWCA Shanklin Center for Senior Enrichment

YWCA Shanklin Center for Senior Enrichment is a small community of independent-living, handicap-accessible apartments that provide permanent housing for elder abuse victims who became homeless as a result of abuse. Living costs are subsidized; residents contribute one-third of their income to cover a portion of maintaining the apartments. Comprehensive case management and support services also are provided to help our seniors navigate the difficult physical, emotional and financial challenges they face. The YWCA Shanklin Center for Senior Enrichment is the state’s first facility of its kind.

The program also provides case management and support services to help residents address physical, emotional and fiscal challenges.
