StoryCorps Tenant Profiles

Every supportive housing tenant has a story to tell. They are stories of loss and struggle, recovery and triumph. Supportive housing, after all, is simply a means to help at-risk people flourish under backbreaking circumstances. In the coming months, we'll share a new profiles of New Yorkers who fought homelessness, addiction, mental illness, re-entry after incarceration and unemployment with the support of supportive housing.

In 2016, we continued our thriving collaboration with StoryCorps and had the opportunity to record and preserve the stories of 30 supportive housing tenants and staff members. Here are highlights from a few of these conversations - the audio links are typically just 3-5 minutes. Thanks to StoryCorps, and to all our nonprofit providers, staff members, and tenants who participated!
