YMCA Humber currently manages 5 properties around North East Lincolnshire, 2 community houses, 2 housing first properties and a care leavers property.

Community Housing

Our first Community Housing Project opened its doors in March 2010 in the heart of central Grimsby. A magnificent five-bedroom Victorian property, the house provides supported accommodation for young males, providing a springboard for young people to further progress in their lives prior to fully independent living.

Since then, we have opened another community house which provides accommodation and support for six young females.

Housing First

Housing First is a housing and support approach which:

  • Gives people who have experienced homelessness and chronic health and social care needs, a stable home from which to rebuild their lives.
  • Provides intensive, person-centred, holistic support that is open-ended.
  • Places no conditions on individuals; however, they should desire to have a tenancy.

YMCA Humber have two housing first properties, one male and one female.

Care Leavers

YMCA Humber have also opened a property specifically for 16 and 17 year old care leavers.

The property provides them with a safe space to live and our coaches work to support them with independent living skills, encouragement to look at options for education or employment and provide support in areas of their life they struggle with as well as getting them ready for live independently when they turn 18.

All of our properties have dedicated and experienced coaches who complete sessions with all clients to identify their long-term goals and aspirations. The coach will then support and guide the clients to achieve these goals in order to move on into independent living.

Each property offers a shared living area, dining area, kitchen and bathroom along with garden space.
