Housing"If it wasn't for Colchester YMCA and the commitment of their staff, I wouldn't be where I am today." (Former tenant Greg, on a visit to Colchester YMCA to invite staff to his passing out ceremony having completed army training)
Colchester YMCA has a 44-room supported housing unit. We house young people aged 16-25, supporting them to ensure that they will become responsible adults, working or in education/training, who are able to maintain a tenancy and look after themselves when they leave the YMCA. The residents are able to stay at the YMCA for a two year period, and after support and training we successfully move them on to independent living.
