WHO WE ARE
Our Mission and History
Founded in 2002, Housing+Solutions provides community-based housing and comprehensive services to women, including women with children, to support them in overcoming poverty, homelessness, addiction, trauma, and the effects of incarceration, in order to build lives of stability, and to define and realize goals for themselves and for their families.
It is our belief that with stable housing and supportive services women are inspired and motivated to overcome obstacles and make positive life choices—reuniting with their children and families, returning to school and maintaining employment. The first tenants called their home Sunflower House.
We provide permanent and transitional housing at eight locations in Brooklyn, in the neighborhoods of East New York, Brownsville, Bedford-Stuyvesant, and Mariners Cove on Staten Island.
