In 1988, Greenhope Housing (GHH) was created by Greenhope: Services For Women, Inc. through the renovation of a 5-story, 26,000 square-foot structure on 119th Street in East Harlem. The two, well-designed and impressive buildings consist of a 20-unit, two bedroom complex for single mothers and their children and a 48-bed single room occupancy (SRO) facility for single women.

Greenhope Housing is a residence that offers homeless women and children an opportunity to live in a peaceful and dignified home while acquiring effective vocational training, psychological and social supports. Our supportive services assist women to become productive and viable members of society.


Approximately 85% of Greenhope Housing residents are referred from transitional housing organizations and New York City shelters. Fifteen percent of the units are inhabited by Greenhope: Services For Women, Inc. program graduates. Greenhope Housing residents arrive at our doors in need:

    • 100% of the women and children have been homeless for an average of 2-3 years.

    • Over 60% are fleeing from violent domestic partners.

    • 40-45% have experienced physical and/or sexual childhood abuse.

    • 60-70% do not have vocational skills or experience.

    • 82% are illiterate and need remedial education.


When a resident signs a lease at Greenhope Housing, she receives several comprehensive social services on site. GHH also refers residents to other services in the community which promote self-sufficiency and independent living:
