Glenmore Manor Apartments will provide a mix of 233 units of affordable, rental supporting housing paired with comprehensive services and programs for special needs formerly adults and very low-income working families and seniors.

The Goal of Glenmore Manor Apartments

The goal of Glenmore Manor Apartments is to meet the immediate and long term housing needs of low-income working families and single adults from the underserved neighborhood of Brownsville/East New York, as well as the housing needs of special needs homeless families and single adult New Yorkers who seek affordable, permanent supportive housing with onsite daily supportive services. The target population will include formerly homeless Veterans and survivors of domestic violence.

Who Glenmore Manor Serves

Low-Income Working Single Adults & Families

Critical to the success of AAPCI’s housing management model is our commitment to inclusive, mixed-income communities. Rather than being marginalized in quasi-institutional settings, our formerly homeless tenants live alongside a diverse group of low-income professionals. In addition to making it possible for formerly homeless  and other vulnerable individuals to stabilize themselves in permanent housing, the affordability, security, and prime location of AAPCI’s housing enables our tenants to contribute to the unique character of New York City. Some are young people newly embarking on an independent life, while others are winding down their careers or cutting down on expenses after retirement.

HIV and AIDS

The high cost of health care and life-saving medications for people living with HIV/AIDS and homelessness often forces individuals with the illness to have to choose between their health and housing. In addition, persons living with HIV/AIDS are more likely to lose their jobs due to discrimination or as a result of frequent health-related absences. Up to half of all HIV positive individuals are thus at risk of becoming homeless.

Special housing subsidies enable individuals living with HIV/AIDS to access permanent supportive housing and associated services. With the stability of a secure home, Edwin’s Place tenants are able to access essential medications, manage their condition with regular preventive care, and address psychological issues that may contribute to the course of their disease.

While AIDS remains a formidable foe and continues to disproportionately impact people of color (over 80% of NYC’s new HIV cases are among African-Americans, Latinos and Asian/Pacific Islanders), advances in drug therapies have turned AIDS into a chronic, manageable disease. And Edwin’s Place provides the stability and services to aid people living with HIV/AIDS to live healthy, live long, and live with dignity.

Mental Health & Substance Abuse

The movement in the 1970s to deinstitutionalize psychiatric patients had the unintended consequence of leaving scores of individuals with mental illnesses without access to appropriate care or supports. As a result, many became homeless.

Of the estimated 744,000 people who are homeless on any given night across the United States, nearly half of them have a serious mental illness, such as clinical depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorders, personality disorders, and substance abuse.

Most of the mentally ill homeless go untreated, and unable to work, and many living on the streets. They also frequently cycle in and out of medical and psychiatric hospitals, drug rehabilitation programs, and prisons and jails, at enormous personal and public costs.

Edwin’s Place seeks to offer a life-enriching alternative to both institutionalization and life on the streets.  Tenants will be offered the opportunity to manage their illness while living independently in the housing, with the support of on-site case managers and links to appropriate care.

Veterans

AAPCI assists several special needs segments of the chronically homeless population in New York City, and regrettably, these include a significant number of military veterans. We serve veterans in all program areas, from transitional to permanent supportive housing.
