We opened Susan’s Place in 2008. Since then, we’ve helped over 1,000 women find permanent housing. We plan to continue that work, with the opening of our 52nd Street Women’s Shelter in the second half of 2019.
The 200-bed transitional women’s shelter is co-located with a CFH health and dental center.
For the past 11 years, Susan’s Place has served medically frail and mentally ill women. The site provides women experiencing homelessness with healthy meals, clean clothing, and recreational activities, in addition to health care and social services.
Above all, Susan’s Place provides women with a safe and supportive environment, as well as the resources they need to stay housed once they are placed in a permanent residence.
Over 1,000 women have been placed in permanent housing since the site opened.
