West End Intergenerational Residence

Young Families

The single mothers entering West End Intergenerational Residence are between the ages of 18 and 24 and have up to three children under age seven—these moms are the youngest heads of household in the shelter system. In addition to suffering trauma from displacement and homelessness, two-thirds are survivors of domestic or family violence. West End Residences provides young mothers informational and self-care programs that impart the skills needed to maintain housing stability as they return to their communities.

Older Adults

Many of our senior residents (the average age is 71) have a history of chronic homelessness and have experienced their own cycles of violence and poverty. We provide social services, empowerment programs, recreational activities, and group celebrations that create a community where seniors can remain healthy and independent as they age in place.

True Colors Residence & True Colors Bronx

LGBTQ Young Adults

True Colors Supportive Housing residents move in between the ages of 18 and 24. There is no time limit on how long they can stay. 65% percent of homeless LGBTQ youth have experienced family rejections. 54% have experienced physical or psychological family abuse. We offer comprehensive support programs including life skills to help LGBTQ young people navigate their unique challenges as they enter adulthood.
