Housing + Support
Nazareth Housing’s highly trained staff provide on-going support to low-income, Veteran, elderly and disabled residents of 40 apartments managed by Nazareth Housing in buildings throughout the Lower East Side and the Bronx. While living in supportive housing, tenants pay one-third of their income towards rent while receiving support services that include:
With stable housing, low-income rent structures, and access to support services, residents are empowered to overcome the effects of poverty and other barriers to housing such as domestic violence, addictive behavior, and low income.
Supportive housing residents live in their own clean and safe apartments among neighbors they know in neighborhoods they love. Surrounded by the support of Nazareth Housing staff, friendly neighbors, and a community that they are invested in, families lay down roots and thrive.
Supportive housing is a permanent solution for many New Yorkers, including formerly homeless families, individuals with a history of substance use, individuals living with mental illness, seniors, and Veterans.
