The YWCA Apartment building was designed by noted female architect, Julia Morgan. The renovated building has been designated a San Francisco Historical landmark and a National Monument of Nob Hill.

The YWCA Apartments is a HUD ( Section 202/8) subsidized housing facility for low income elderly, 62 years of age and older, and people with disabilities. The building consists of 97 units: 73 studio units and 24 one-bedroom units. Each unit has its own electric kitchen and bathroom and is equipped with 2 emergency pull cords that are linked to the front office. The apartments are unfurnished.

The rent for the apartment is subsidized by HUD. Rent includes the cost of heating, water and trash disposal, but does not include telephone, cable or electricity. For the convenience of our tenants, laundry facilities are available.


Seniors here live in a safe, stable and comfortable environment, where they are treated with the dignity and respect they deserve. Since so many of our residents have strong ties to the surrounding neighborhood, their close proximity enables them to fulfill the cultural needs of everyday living.

Our residents don’t just reside here – they’re truly able to live and age gracefully due to the wide array of programs and activities that we offer in the building. Our health education classes provide seniors with monthly insights into the best ways to keep living a long and healthy life. Our daily exercise classes get residents out of their apartments and moving together. Our weekly food pantry ensures that our seniors and other members of the community in need get access to fresh produce and food. And our monthly social celebrations help break the social isolation that often happens in senior homes, giving residents a chance not only to celebrate but to make deep connections with others around them.


When an apartment is available and a currently-waitlisted applicant has been interviewed and accepted,
arrangements will be made regarding a move-in date and rental fee. A refundable security deposit is required of all tenants.
