Room Picture

The Downtown Y is located at 350 North 1st Avenue, Phoenix 85003 and is across the street from the Metro Light Rail and city bus depot.  Also within walking distance is Arizona State University’s downtown campus, Chase Field, US Airways Arena, CityScape, Arts & Entertainment district and multiple restaurants and eateries.

The Downtown Y Residence Program offers supportive services and transitional housing for adult men and women.  Our main objective is to offer the assistance needed to stabilize and maintain independent living while helping to obtain services from community agencies and government programs for those in need.  The Residence Program also offers affordable housing for college students, retirees on a fixed income, and for those who choose to live and work in the downtown area.

The Residence Program has a women’s only floor with 16 single rooms and four men’s only floors with 123 single rooms.  The rooms come furnished with a twin bed, three dresser drawers, a desk, chair, mini-refrigerator, and small closet.  Each floor has common shower and bathroom facilities.  There is a lounge area for reading or watching TV, coin-operated washers & dryers, vending machines, microwave, distilled water and a discounted gym membership is available for an additional $6/week.
