About This Program
Target Population: Older relatives (usually grandparents) who are raising children under 18 years of age
The mission of the Grandparent Family Apartments is to provide safe and affordable housing and support systems that enable grandparents raising grandchildren to reach their full potential and their grandchildren to gain the emotional and educational tools essential for success. GrandParent Family Apartments is a collaborative project among Presbyterian Senior Services (PSS), West Side Federation For Senior and Supportive Housing, Inc. (WSFSSH), and New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA). The housing is in a building that was built for this purpose with elders and children active participants in the design of the building. The building includes a ground-floor activity center and garden; apartments with emergency cords in bedrooms and grab bars in the bathrooms; and 24-hour staff and support. Services provided for caregivers include: Support groups, respite counseling, intergenerational programs, Education workshops and seminars and benefit and entitlement assistance.
