Coming in 2020
St. Catherine's Center for Children is proud to announce our latest initiative, a new Supportive Housing Apartment Complex coming to 543 North Pearl Street.
St. Catherine's Center for Children is building a new Supportive Housing Complex at 543 North Pearl Street in Albany. The existing structure at the building site is scheduled to be torn down this spring to make way for the new complex, a 20-apartment building that will house both families and single adults. New construction is expected to begin this summer, with completion of the project slated for 2020.
What is Supportive Housing, and why is it important?
Supportive Housing provides a stable and affordable housing option for vulnerable populations who are homeless or at-risk of becoming homeless. When St. Catherine’s new Supportive Housing Complex is built, occupants will not only enjoy a safe and affordable place to live, but they will also receive supportive or “wrap-around” services from St. Catherine's staff.
Those services will link tenants to a wide range of community services and support programs for which they may be eligible. From coordinating health care and counseling services to offering employment assistance, our Supportive Housing program will help tenants live with stability, autonomy, and dignity.
