Governor Kathy Hochul today announced the completion of Open Door Mission’s $6.8 million development of the Miller Building in Rochester to include 24 units of permanent supportive housing for former homeless individuals. Funded largely by the Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance’s Homeless Housing and Assistance Program, the apartments will be occupied by individuals with mental illness, those struggling with substance use disorder and youth ages 18 to 25.
“These new apartments will provide not just a safe and affordable place to live, but also the supportive services needed to thrive,” Governor Hochul said. “Supportive housing like the Miller Building in Rochester is a critical component of my administration’s commitment to building inclusive communities that help ensure all New Yorkers have a safe, affordable place to call home, and we will continue to invest in supportive housing as a fundamental part of our efforts to address homelessness across the state.”
