The YWCA of Trivandrum offers a safe dwelling place for ladies above the age of 55.
The idea of a Hostel and not an Old Age Home for senior women may be a new one.
But it is the need of the hour.  Around us there are many women living alone in  individual houses constantly worrying  about their health and safety. To such women this Hostel is a boon. There is short term and long term stay offered. Read more about it in Our Services.
