Shelter in the Bronx
Care for the Homeless has established Susan’s Place as a shelter dedicated to serving medically frail and mentally ill homeless women. Susan’s Place gives these women a safe and supportive environment and the services that will help keep them re-housed after placed in permanent housing. A Learning Center by Architecture for Humanity New York will provide a space for computer skills training, job placement investigation within an instructional environment to help women take on the responsibilities of being independent after leaving the shelter. The center will incorporate fixed and movable computer workstations, instructional components and materials to support the learning environment envisioned. The renovation will include new partitions, flooring and lighting, as well as other finishes required for the proposed Learning Center that will help all of the women at Susan’s Place.
