Our Goals

What:  

Provide the Greater Rochester region's residents with permanent, affordable, quality supportive housing combined with access to social and educational services in an architecturally attractive, energy - efficient building with on-site parking and with locally proven and expert property management.

Why:  

There is a shortage of permanent affordable housing in the City of Rochester and region. The Eastman Commons program will replicate proven models that provide tenants with the support they need while instilling a sense of pride in their independent living.

Who: 

Individual adult (workers, seniors, veterans, etc.) residents earning less than $26,940 / year, and adult formerly homeless individuals ready for independent living. 

All eligible tenants will undergo an application and screening process, sign annual leases and pay rent equaling 30 % of eligible income.

On-site services: 

Case management, life skills development, goal planning, credit counseling, money management, and educational assistance along with other health, social and recreational activities.

Where: 

Our continuing development focus is within the City Rochester, New York and surrounding region where access to public transportation, service providers and other related independent living amenities are readily and affordably available.

When: 

Construction on our initial project is completed and operational (see Accomplishments). Planning for new development opportunities are under consideration.
