Harlem World: New York Foundling Opens Housing For Youth Aging Out Of Foster Care: “Breaking The Cycle”

Harlem Supportive Housing

Harlem World reports on the opening ceremony, held May 31, of our new supportive housing units, located in a brand-new building in Harlem.

“The New York Foundling today marked the completion of a major affordable and supportive housing complex in amenity-rich Harlem. The new model is for helping youth who are aging out of foster care and exiting the shelter system,” they write.

Our hands-on program provides safe, affordable housing and critical services, including job training and support, that help put young people on track for healthy and fulfilling lives as adults. This is how we break the cycle of homelessness for these young people,” said Melanie Hartzog, President and CEO of The New York Foundling, one of the city’s oldest and largest human services organizations. “Easily accessible and centrally located, this supportive housing project represents a new model that builds a bridge from foster care to independent living. I thank Governor Kathy Hochul and all of our incredible project partners for helping us bring this much needed project to the heart of Harlem.”
