Supportive Housing

mosholu gardens

Acacia Network seeks to provide a full spectrum of Housing Services to our community, from housing development and property management, to the provision of integrated social services to support our disabled and/or elderly tenants.

Many of our tenants are either formerly homeless or at risk of homelessness due to economic and/or chronic physical and mental health conditions. Through our integrated Health, Housing, and Social Services Divisions, we seek to meet our clients’ broad range of needs to provide the support they need to remain housed and to live independently.
