Our Locations

Homeward Upper West Side

At any given time, Homeward UWS is home to 54 young families and 40 older adults. Our intergenerational housing model fosters an environment where families and seniors can take classes and celebrate together. The relationships formed between residents are tremendously rewarding for seniors, standing in for family most no longer have. For the young families they embrace, the effect is profound—many had abusive relationships with their own parents.

Homeward UWS features fully furnished single room occupancy units (some with private bath), in-unit cooking ranges, indoor community rooms, 24-hour security, affordable rent at 30% of income for seniors, and long-term transitional shelter stays for young mothers and their children up to age seven.

Homeward West Harlem

Opened in 2011 and home to 30 residents, our building in West Harlem is New York’s first non-time limited, affordable housing with onsite support services designed for homeless LGBTQ young adults.

Homeward West Harlem features fully furnished studio apartments, indoor and outdoor community space, a small library, computer room, live-in superintendent, 24-hour security, affordable rent at 30% of income, tailored support services for those with diagnosed substance use disorders, and non-time limited young adult supportive housing—residents don’t age out on their 25th birthday.

Homeward Bronx

Opened in 2015 and home to 30 residents, our building in Bedford Park replicates the successful West Harlem model of affordable housing with onsite support services designed for homeless LGBTQ young adults.

Homeward Bronx features fully furnished studio apartments, indoor and outdoor community space, a small library, computer room, live-in superintendent, 24-hour security, affordable rent at 30% of income, tailored support services for chronically homeless single adults with diagnosed mental illness, and non-time limited young adult supportive housing—residents don’t age out on their 25th birthday.

Homeward Central Harlem

(In development)

We are developing a third LGBTQ supportive housing site that will provide housing for 50 LGBTQ young adults. The need for LGBTQ young adult supportive housing is great—we have waiting lists at our existing sites. In identifying the site, we considered neighborhood amenities and safety assessments—individuals identifying as LGBTQ are at higher risk of criminal assault than their straight counterparts. This is particularly true for transgender individuals.

Managed Sites

Since 2007, we have provided counseling and program services, accounting, and property management at two low-income family housing sites for the Sisters of Charity. Casa Cecilia is a 35-unit supportive housing program in Hamilton Heights in Manhattan. Seton House is a 16-unit building in East Harlem housing homeless families and individuals.
