Our Mission: To reduce the rate of homelessness among individuals who are mentally ill and chronically homeless in NYC. Supportive housing is one of the most effective interventions in decreasing homelessness for some of New York City’s most vulnerable populations such as individuals and families coping with mental illness, trauma/abuse, addiction and chronic illness including HIV/AIDS. Since 2007 there has been a decrease in the chronically homeless population and a primary reason for the downward trend is the increasing use of permanent supportive housing. We are doing our part to end homelessness in NYC and are currently recruiting new team members who believe strongly in affording individuals the opportunity to turn their lives around.
