SUPPORTIVE HOUSING FOR WOMEN
In 1988, Greenhope Housing (GHH) was created by Greenhope: Services For Women, Inc. through the renovation of a 5-story, 26,000 square-foot structure on 119th Street in East Harlem. The two, well-designed and impressive buildings consist of a 20-unit, two bedroom complex for single mothers and their children and a 48-bed single room occupancy (SRO) facility for single women.
Greenhope Housing is a residence that offers homeless women and
children an opportunity to live in a peaceful and dignified home
while acquiring effective vocational training, psychological and
social supports. Our supportive services assist women to become productive
and viable members of society.
