After years of hard work, sweat, and a few tears, renovations are finally coming to a close on our new Lee Dyer Family Apartments. The first of two buildings located in downtown Rensselaer will provide permanent supportive housing to four families with a history of homelessness. In addition to stable housing, this new program will provide case management services including life skill development, medical support, advocacy services, and enrichment activities for everyone in the family.

If you’d like to become a part of the solution and sponsor one of these units, reach out to Meghan at [email protected] or by giving us a call at (518) 434-2910.
