Construction started in June for the new Woodhull Community Residence. Official ground breaking ceremonies were held on August 16th with a strong presence of elected officials, funders, and other partners, Comunilife and NYC Health + Hospitals. The residence building will be 6-stories, include 89 single room occupancy units and is located on the grounds of the Woodhull Hospital in Brooklyn. The facility is owned by Comunilife. It is scheduled to open in December of 2018.
“When completed, Comunilife’s new Woodhull Residence will be home to 89 low-income New Yorkers, including 54 residents living with special needs,” said Rosa M. Gil, DSW, Comunilife President and CEO. “This project has been a dream for many years. It transforms how we provide affordable and supportive housing to our community’s most vulnerable and serves as a model to address the most basic and powerful social determinant of health, housing. By partnering with NYC Health + Hospital/Woodhull, as well as New York State and New York City agencies, we will truly be able to meet the independent housing, social service, and health care needs under one roof.”
