The NY Times reports on Community Access’ restoration of the old Gouverneur Hospital, now called Gouverneur Court. Read the article, Still Housing the Needy, In a Changed Manhattan.  Barrier Free Living is working with Community Access on its latest Supportive Housing project.

Steve Coe, Community Access Chief Executive Officer says: “As I mention in the article, the people we help were excluded from mainstream housing, which meant that social workers and community organizers had to figure out how to meet this crucial need.  As “accidental developers,” I think my colleagues and I in the supportive housing world have done a pretty good job.  At Community Access alone, thanks to your support, over 1,100 people will be sleeping in their own homes tonight.”
