Welcome to Housing+Solutions!
Fifteen years ago, Housing+Solutions opened its doors to six families and ten single women who had been incarcerated and homeless and needed safe housing and assistance to re-enter the life of the community. We handed each woman a key to her own apartment. The women thrived.
Today, we house more than 100 women and families. Our uniquely holistic approach helps women facing homelessness build lives of their own. We:
• Provide housing so they can create real homes
• Help them get suitable jobs
• Help them address the traumatic events that may have caused their homelessness:
chronic abuse, drug addiction, incarceration,
and for female veterans, physical disabilities and emotional suffering.
Housing+Solutions is one of the city’s—and the nation’s—most progressive and successful not-for-profit housing and support programs. Our work benefits not only the women we serve, but the communities in which they live and the taxpayers of New York.
