Since 1989, Urban Strategies Maternity Residence, a Tier II shelter, has housed pregnant women and their spouse or partner. The facility is opened 24 hours a day 7 days a week, in order to assist residents and their families.
All residents are assigned to a case manager who assists with the provision of social services and housing throughout their stay. Our staff promotes family unification and encourage clients to empower themselves, be accountable, self sufficient, and transition into their community as productive and independent citizens.
Today, in order to meet the diverse needs of our community, this facility offers: counseling, housing readiness, job preparation, independent living and life skills workshops, and conflict resolution training.
We also provide the following referral services: public assistance, employment, education, substance abuse, housing, mental health, WIC, prenatal and postpartum
All referrals into our shelters are made directly by New York City Department of Homeless Services.
