Enriched Housing Programs
The Foundation’s Enriched Housing Programs currently reside in seven buildings – and continue to grow. Each community-oriented program has been thoughtfully designed to provide a pleasant living environment and appropriate social services, through carefully managed budgets. The program’s frail elderly participants receive services such as assistance with personal hygiene, shopping and meals, and with medical appointments and other personal needs.
In 1979, the Foundation planned, developed and launched the first program of this kind in Manhattan, the fourth in New York State. Thereafter, the Foundation implemented other Enriched Housing Programs, which are located within its subsidized buildings, Arthur B. Brown and William Brown Gardens, 1850 Second Avenue, Ridge Street Gardens, Clinton Gardens, Cumberland Gardens, Alma Rangel Gardens and River View Gardens.
