Summary
YWCA’s headquarters, our Seneca location has provided shelter for women and families since 1914.

YWCA’s Fifth and Seneca location was Seattle’s first and only facility built “for the benefit of women and girls.” Added to the National Register of Historic Place in 2006, the building was designed by Pacific Northwest architect E.F. Champney who also designed the 1909 Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Expo in Seattle.

YWCA’s Seneca Women’s Residence provides permanent, affordable, and safe housing options, including 126 single room occupancy (SRO) units with shared kitchens and restrooms on each floor.

For adults, it’s a starting place for steady employment and economic success. For seniors, it’s helping our most vulnerable neighbors live with grace and dignity. For children, it’s a secure beginning, a nurturing environment, a foundation for stability and independence.

YWCA provides a comprehensive continuum of housing and services specifically designed to promote housing stability and family self-sufficiency. Housing is an integral part of fulfilling our mission: improving the quality of life for women and their families. We believe that, working together, we can create a community where all women and their families have a safe, stable place to live.

In addition to permanent housing, our Seneca location includes emergency shelter, BABES Network-YWCA, and a range of administrative offices.
