On August 22nd, Christopher Community held a groundbreaking ceremony for Community View Apartments, an affordable/supportive housing project in Morrisville, New York.  This 61-unit building has 20 units set aside for ESSHI seniors, with services provided by Crouse Community Health Care.   Services will be funded by the NYS Department of Health and will include home aides, day programs, social activities and nutritional counselling. 

President & CEO of Christopher Community, Inc., Justin Rudgick opened the program and remarked “Community View Apartments will focus on meeting the diverse needs of our residents, including seniors at risk of homelessness and unstably housed in the Morrisville community. We are proud to collaborate with Crouse Community Center, state agencies and local service providers on this new construction project, and to build a vibrant community where individuals aged 55 and older can thrive and access vital resources for a fulfilling life.” 

President & CEO of Crouse Community Center DJ Raux followed and said, “Bringing this type of senior apartment with supportive living for Central and Southern Madison County is truly needed. It allows our area seniors to continue to reside independently where they have lived most of their lives and call home.”  

Other featured speakers included New York State Homes and Community Renewal (HCR)’s Lenny Skrill and Brenda McAteer of the Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance (OTDA).

Building amenities will include a fitness center, lounges and free Wi-Fi.

The capital funding sources were NYS HCR Supportive Housing Opportunity Program (SHOP), NYS OTDA Homeless Housing and Assistance Program (HHAP), and KeyBank.

The architect is Holmes King Kallquist & Associates Architects and the contractor is Rich and Gardner.
