Welcome to Forest YMCA Housing Services

Our main hostel in Waltham Forest provides 300 units of temporary supported accommodation which enables vulnerable young people to escape from homelessness.

Our staff work intensively with our young residents to provide them with the life skills they need to continue their journey to independent living.

In 2011, we supported 510 residents into education, training or employment.

"Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending."
