Building for the Future

West End Residences UpdateDuring this season of giving, the staff and clients of West End Residences would like to take this opportunity to offer our sincere thanks for your giving, your volunteerism and your support.

I’m excited to announce two new developments for West End Residences.

First, we are preparing for major renovations at West End Intergenerational Residence, a one-hundred-year-old building. These renovations will enhance our ability to meet the needs of the young families and older adults we serve.

Second, we are developing a third True Colors Supportive Housing site in Harlem that will provide housing for 50 LGBTQ young adults.

Please check out this update for details.

From my 30 years’ experience serving homeless, marginalized populations I have learned that compassion—paired with innovation and commitment—can produce measurable social change. Your generosity is life-changing for homeless families and individuals. Thank you.
