"I found out about your housing in the newspaper. Down
on my luck, lost everyone and everything. It was like god told me to read the paper.
I went to the Bronx office. They were helpful but I had to really run around and
complete many tasks to get into the housing program. With their help I got myself
back on my feet. I thank god for Bronx homeWORKS." –MB
The most important request from recipients is housing: a place of one’s own, a roof over one’s head, a safe place. Our supported housing program staff diligently make sure to be at full capacity year-round with 87 apartments and 88 tenants. The essential Housing Program goal is to help tenants lead successful lives within the community. The housing specialist works with a group of tenants to help each tenant develop his or her own housing goals. Together, the housing specialist and the tenant create a safe and satisfying home life with monthly apartment visits, office visits, and classes on apartment living, money management, healthy eating, community awareness and social connections and apartment maintenance. Job search and readiness tools also enhance the experience of living in the community. Our specialists stay connected to community resources, take care of crises, and work with landlords to maintain and improve the quality of the apartments. Both homeWORKS programs are currently at 100% occupancy. Waiting lists exist for prospective residents.
