Completed in 2006, The Cornerstone Residence includes 128 apartments, including 116 supportive housing units and 12 artist lofts. The Cornerstone houses a mixed tenancy of adults including the formerly homeless, those living with a mental health diagnosis, veterans, artists, low-income working adults, and other adults who need affordable housing.
The Cornerstone offers many amenities to its tenants, including a computer lab, library, and fitness center. Support services, case management, and job training are provided by Independent Living, who are also located within the building.
Many of The Cornerstone’s programs are also open to the general public, including an on-site GED program, computer training classes, and a wellness center. An art studio is provided on-site for our visual artist residents.
Since opening its doors, The Cornerstone’s innovative mix of supportive housing, artist lofts, and on-site social services earned it the prestigious “Residence of the Year” Award from the Supportive Housing Network of New York in 2007.
