Impact

We began our Concourse Scattered Site 15/15 program as model to house young adult singles and families. Our services include mental health assessments and skills training, substance abuse counseling and referral, medical and medication monitoring and much more.

Recent Work

This initiative is a part of the New York City 15/15 Supported Housing Program that was created to address the issue of homelessness by housing chronically homeless single adults with a serious mental illness (SMI), a substance use disorder (SUD) including those who are actively using or those who may have a co-occurring SMI or SUD.

Future Goals

To expand the reach of our program in and beyond the Bronx, NY through social service and social work internships placements as well as creating with partnerships with local business for employment and artistic expression. Our future goals also include. Developing specialized housing for the aging population, becoming a premier location for small industry and community workshops and trainings
