Bronx

The Women's Housing and Economic Development Corporation (WHEDco) works in the South Bronx to restore pride of place, empower residents, and make neighborhoods livable and healthy. They build energy efficient and affordable homes; provide early childhood education and family support; promote youth development; and catalyze business development among local merchants and individual entrepreneurs. WHEDco offers affordable housing to low-income individuals and families, including the formerly homeless, and provides an array of services to the community from two Bronx-locations: Morrisania and Crotona Park East.

Elevating Older Adults

We work to assure the availability of quality services that support New York's growing older adult population. These services, provided to over 60,000 Older Adults each year by settlement houses, include: senior centers, case management, home delivered meals, adult day programs, mental health services, home care, and services in Naturally Occurring Retirement Communities (NORCs).

UNH accomplishes this through advocacy and policy analysis as well as by providing resources to our member agencies for program innovation and enhancement.
