Apply to YMRP

The deadline for applications has passed. The application process will open again in January 2017. 

Once an applicant has completed the interview process, she will be contacted via phone or email concerning the status of her application. An Occupancy Fee is required for all participants. This fee ranges between $250 and $350 per month, determined on a sliding scale basis, based on the participant’s income. This fee covers the usage of the facility and utilities.  The fee is revisited on a quarterly basis during the participant’s stay in the program.

Support the Young Mothers Program

Through this program, Project Row Houses provides a solid safety net for young single mothers striving to build a better life for themselves and for their children. This is just one of the many ways in which we uplift our community through long-term investment and commitment to individuals and groups in our community. These programs are made possible through the generous support of individuals like you. If you would like to join our Community of Supporters, you can do so by donating or through the purchase of items on the YMRP Wishlist.
