Women share bathroom facilities, a large Victorian kitchen, pantry, and parlor. Room fees range from $90 to $110 per week, depending on the size of the room. The organization also offers a family residence program at 11 Market St., which consists of six studios, two two-bedroom apartments, and two one-bedroom apartments. The one-bedroom units are available to people with disabilities; the other eight to households that are homeless. In all, YWCA Newburyport is offering five newly constructed units and five that are fully renovated. Six of the 10 available units will be offered to households with incomes at or below 30 percent of the area median income, or $22,500 per year for a three-person household; four will be offered to households with incomes at or below 50 percent of the area median income, or $42,500 for a three-person household. Interested individuals are encouraged to complete an application form, available online or by phone at 978-465-9922, ext. 27. The deadline for all applications is 5 p.m. Aug. 27. Applications should be submitted to YWCA Greater Newburyport, 13 Market St., Newburyport, MA 01950, ATTN: Rental Lottery. Potential tenants must have a current source of income.
