Homeless Housing Assistance Corp.
Supporting New Yorkers In Need
Homeless Housing Assistance Corporation and The New York State Office of Mental Health
Projects: Liberty Landing (Ronkonkoma), Ebeneezer Square (West Seneca) (Office of Mental Health)
DASNY’s Role: Construction provided by DASNY for both projects, with low-cost tax-exempt financing provided for Ebeneezer Square
Details: DASNY provides construction services and low-cost financing services to support New York State’s mission to create affordable and supportive housing units for the New York State Office of Mental Health (OMH). In Ronkonkoma, the State’s effort led to the creation of Liberty Landing apartments, a 59-unit home for homeless veterans that provides behavioral health, medical, vocational and social services these American heroes need to live successful lives. DASNY, through its partnership with the Homeless Housing Assistance Program, monitored construction on the $24.8 million project.
On the opposite end of the state, DASNY monitored construction of Ebenezer Square Apartments in West Seneca (Erie County), which replaced a blighted, big box store with 25 affordable apartments integrated with a 75-unit, licensed residential program serving adults with psychiatric disabilities. It creates a community that fosters recovery and independence.
Impact: DASNY’s work with OMH’s Homeless Housing Assistance Corporation (HHAC) transforms units like these across the state into affordable, supportive housing that brings new life to the surrounding neighborhoods and to those who will call them home. They also create communities that foster recovery and independence.
