YW Calgary announced the completion of the building alongside the City of Calgary as well as the provincial and federal governments Wednesday morning.
The building aims to provide homes for those escaping domestic violence who often have limited options after their 21-day stay has expired at a shelter.
The new facility will provide 21 two- and three-bedroom units for women and children. Residents will also have access to YW’s programs and services, such as counselling and parenting programs.
It will also have a shelter that will provide emergency housing for families fleeing domestic violence.
