February 2023- SHERO’s Liberty House moves to a new location. Nine participants in our SHERO program moved into newly renovated and fully-furnished transitional housing. One such participant said while she has been in a lot of shelters, this is the first place that looked like a home and made her feel valued.

January 2023- The Lowe’s Hometowns project is complete! Our community room is now ADA-accessible. We are excited to begin hosting tenant gatherings, meetings, and more this spring.

December 2022- HousingPlus receives a $5,000 Giving Tuesday matching donation from the Brooklyn Community Foundation. Thank you to all who donated and doubled their impact.

November 2022- HousingPlus breaks ground on our newest expansion at Shepherd- Glenmore in East New York Brooklyn. We are thrilled to be partnering with new affordable housing developer, Spatial Equity, on this project, as well as with MHG Architects, one of our Linwood Apartments partners.  This project will not only expand our capacity within the NYC supportive housing continuum, but will further bolster our commitment to the East New York community.  Our thanks also to our New York City and New York State partners, NYC HPD and NYS HFA.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide community-based housing and comprehensive services to women, including women with children, to support them in overcoming poverty, homelessness, addiction, trauma, and the effects of incarceration, in order to build lives of stability, and to define and realize goals for themselves and for their families.

In 2002, HousingPlus opened its doors to six families and six single women who had been incarcerated and homeless and needed safe housing and assistance to re-enter the community. We handed each woman a key to her own apartment. Our hallmark is our unwavering commitment to addressing the lack of housing and services for historically underserved and marginalized NYC women and their children, including female veterans, justice-involved women, and women with histories of mental health challenges, sexual abuse, domestic violence, substance use, chronic illness, adverse childhood experiences, and other trauma.

Our impact is strong and profound—over the years, we have helped hundreds of women access the resources needed to secure safe and stable housing, become self-sufficient, and build family stability. Today, we house approximately 176 families and single women across eight programs in Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island.
