Our Project HOST Program
Project HOST stands for Healthy Outcomes and Supported Transitions. This program assists families and individuals, primarily in Albany and Rensselaer counties, needing affordable housing with tenancy support through case management and advocacy services.
In conjunction with Connect, Project HOST also offers supportive housing and case management services for homeless singles. These programs aim to help people who face a variety of complex challenges, live with stability, autonomy and dignity. Project HOST works to improve the health and well-being of people experiencing homelessness or housing instability.
