Hebrew Home Supportive Housing.
Of the 167 apartments at 1880 Boston Rd., 51 have been specifically set aside to house homeless seniors with chronic medical conditions who currently reside in the NYC shelter system. As part of the newly created Empire State Supportive Housing Initiative (ESSHI), funding for the supportive housing portion is made possible by a grant through the New York State Department of Health.
In addition to providing housing, 1880 Boston Road supportive housing program boasts a full range of social services with a staff of social workers and activities specialists, rendering case management and a full range of holistic activities that keep the mind and body active.
In its supportive housing endeavor, Hebrew Home has partnered with Foxy Management, a Bronx-based property management and development company, with significant expertise in the specialized areas of affordable and supportive housing.
Through its supportive housing program, Hebrew Home is focused on aging in place where the goal is to ensure the appropriate levels of support to improve health outcomes, ultimately reducing the cycle of avoidable hospitalizations, over-utilization of hospital emergency departments, and premature nursing home placement.
