Peter Young Residence Homeless Shelter
Brooklyn, NY 11220
UPDATE THIS LISTING
The Peter Young Residence is a 150 bed homeless shelter funded by the Department of Homeless Services. This large, six story site provides a structured housing program for transition back into society. The goal of the program is to habilitate individuals who are homeless and who have lost the life skills or the hope to function within our society.
Admissions criteria involve those who are homeless, have some disability or destabilizing condition, must commit themselves to a program of recovery, and do not have a history of violent behavior and may co-exist with others in a transitional setting.
Some of the services offered include education and training upon admission, compliance plan development, intervention, on-site care and feeding facilities, 24 hour continuous coverage, and provision of a structured living plan. The expected stay is for between six to nine months.
The shelter is unique due to its relationship to PYHIT. Clients are able to receive an array of services beyond those of other shelters. With PYHIT's background in alcohol and drug addictions, clients in recovery benefit from counseling and treatment, and may be able to "graduate" to other parts of the program for training and housing.
As stated above, the ultimate goal of the program is to habilitate individuals who are homeless and who have lost the life skills or hope to function within our society under a licensed transitional shelter. The second goal is assure a safe, clean, and respectful environment. These areas comprise housekeeping, maintenance of the structure, dietary issues, and security of the residents. The third goal is to provide an effective network of adjacent services to all clients for their medical, vocational, and therapeutic needs.
