Residents will begin moving in this week to a number of newly-renovated Supportive Living and Permanent Supportive Housing apartments. The housing is part of Finger Lakes Addictions Counseling and Referral Agency’s project to fight addiction and homelessness through its Rural Housing Initiative Project.
FLACRA will open four multi-family dwellings, the organization announced. The project, with help from the Corporation for Supportive Housing, will provide 22 homeless individuals with stable housing. Individuals will live independently while benefiting from FLACRA’s support services and will be encouraged to seek education, employment, and achieve other life goals; 14 of the 22 beds are licensed by the NYS Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services.
The new housing facilities are in Newark, Waterloo, Geneva, and Penn Yan. On Nov. 17, Ribbon Cutting and Open House will be at 107 High St., Newark, beginning at 10 a.m.; and at 1908 Burgess Road, Waterloo, beginning at 2 p.m. On Nov. 18, Ribbon Cutting and Open House will be at 120 William Street, Geneva, beginning at 10 a.m. ; and 20 Maiden Lane, Penn Yan, beginning at 2 p.m.
