Mission Statement

West End's mission is to provide safe and supportive transitional and permanent housing together with comprehensive services that assist and empower homeless and formerly homeless youth, families, and older adults to live full and productive lives.

Description

West End is a unique and innovative nonprofit operating a homeless shelter with social services for 54 young mothers and their children and permanent affordable housing with on-site social services for 40 low-income and formerly homeless seniors. We also operate a permanent supportive housing program for 30 LGBT youth. West End has served more than 2,800 homeless single mothers aged 18 to 24, each with one or two small children, from newborns to seven years of age, providing transitional housing and social services. We have also been home to 92 seniors. We are now the only Department of Homeless Services (DHS) funded program specifically serving these young families, and the only intergenerational program of its kind in the state. We are also the only organization in New York City providing permanent supportive housing solely for LGBT youth.
