There is a new housing option for the homeless on Staten Island. Project Hospitality officials cut the ribbon on the borough's first permanent supportive housing development Monday. 16 people with disabilities will move into the Stapleton complex. The building will also offer in-house health and social services.
"They not only are provided a home but they are provided services they're provided support and the support is what allows them to thrive," said Affordable Housing Architect Amie Gross.
Tenants contribute a third of their income toward rent. The rest is subsidized through the state's Department of Housing and Urban Development.
