On Wednesday, December 5, HELP USA celebrated the grand opening of Woodycrest Apartments in The Bronx, NY.
The new development contains 48 affordable studio apartments, 29 of which are reserved for formerly homeless individuals, including veterans. The remaining apartments serve low-income households. The building also features onsite HELP USA social service offices, a gym, a community room, and ample outdoor space.
“This building is a physical manifestation of everything HELP USA stands for,” said David Cleghorn, Chief Housing Officer at HELP USA. “Woodycrest Apartments is affordable housing with services on site: built by a team of public and private organizations committed to the same cause. This is truly the solution to the housing crisis in New York City – and we are proud to be here today cutting the ribbon.”
Woodycrest Apartments was made possible through a collaboration between The New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development, HELP USA, CMC Development, LLC, and the New York City Housing Authority.
