More on Edgemere Commons Supportive Housing

The new building complements the aims of New York City’s Resilient Edgemere Community Plan, which establishes the groundwork for the city’s continuing investment in the Edgemere community for years to come. The plan, which was developed with community involvement, combines the City’s recovery efforts following Hurricane Sandy with a long-term vision for a better quality of life for Edgemere residents.

The Block Institute will provide on-site housing support services to 29 persons with developmental impairments who will live in the complex. An extra 30 units will be reserved for individuals who are homeless. Through an Empire State Supporting Housing Initiative grant sponsored by the New York State Office of Mental Health, these people will have access to housing subsidies and supportive services (OMH). WellLife Network is the service provider.

A community room, a leisure room, bicycle storage, laundry facilities, a roof terrace, and outdoor activity area will beEd among the residential amenities.
