Residential Services

Our residential programs are certified by the New York State Office of Children and Family Services and include:

  • Hall House – a 16-bed confidential domestic violence shelter in the Utica, NY area. Hall House has been in operation since 1981 and was made possible thanks to a large bequest from Dr. William Hall.
  • Lucy’s House – a 6-bed confidential domestic violence safe dwelling in the Rome, NY area. Lucy’s House has been in operation since 2001.
  • New Horizons – a residential program with a transitional housing component for runaway and homeless girls ages 16 to 21. New Horizons was founded in 1993 by a group of residents, clergy, and business people with a shared concern about the alarming rise in drug use, homelessness, prostitution, and street activity among young women in the community. The program merged with the YWCA in 2005.
  • Willow Commons – a transitional housing program for homeless victims of domestic violence. Housing and support services, such as case management, counseling, life skills education, and job skills preparation, are provided for up to two years with the overarching goal of helping individuals regain independence.
