Helping people move out, and stay out, of homelessness is at the heart of all that we do. Our housing programs are helping individuals and families throughout New York City.
Widely credited with being a founder of the supportive housing model, CUCS opened NYC’s first mixed supportive housing program with a partner organization in 1983. Since then we have also established a supportive housing model for families.
We now provide supportive services, including case management and on-site medical and psychiatric services, to individuals and families in more than 2,200 supportive housing units in Brooklyn, Manhattan and the Bronx.
Our Home to Stay program helps families living in shelters break the cycle of homelessness. First connecting families to rental subsidies and income, our Home to Stay teams then help them identify and secure apartments throughout New York City’s five boroughs.
Once a family has moved into their new home, the program helps them increase their income by accessing benefits and employment, providing vocational and financial counseling, and connecting them to services in their local communities.
Our Housing Resource Center expands access to housing and support services for people with mental illnesses and other special needs.
