Mayor launches new program to provide homeless patients with affordable, supportive housing


Mayor Eric Adams launched a new initiative to connect patients experiencing homelessness to affordable homes with support services Thursday, Nov. 3, at the T Building in Jamaica, the morning after it was recognized as the downstate project of the year by the New York State Association for Affordable Affordable Housing (NYSAFAH).

Built in 1937, the former tuberculosis ward of Queens Hospital was converted by SLCE Architecture Group into 200 apartments, 75 of which are supportive housing for patients in the NYC Health + Hospitals system who experienced homelessness.
