Homeward NYC is a nonprofit organization providing housing and services for homeless persons.
We own and operate two LGBTQ young adult supportive housing (affordable housing with support) sites and a mixed-age housing site that is a transitional family shelter for homeless mothers and children and long-term, affordable housing for low-income and homeless seniors. Homeward NYC was formerly known as West End Intergenerational Residence and our True Colors Supportive Housing.
At each location, we provide housing and support services including case management, life skills, counseling, and community partnerships. The Life Skills Program is a core component of our direct services; the program builds skills for housing stability, and promotes healing and increased independence. Our Transitional Care & Aftercare Program launches in 2023.
Our mixed-age housing is located on the Upper West Side. Our LGBTQ supportive housing sites are located in West Harlem and the Bronx. A third LGBTQ site (located in Central Harlem) opens fall 2023. Our administrative office for Finance and Operations is located in Morningside Heights.
We also provide counseling and program services, accounting, and property management at two low-income family housing sites for the Sisters of Charity: Casa Cecilia in Hamilton Heights and Seton House in East Harlem.
Homeward NYC provides housing and wraparound services that empower homeless young mothers, LGBTQ young people and older adults to live life forward.
