Rental Housing Development
Christopher Community has been developing affordable rental housing for seniors, families and special needs populations since 1971. Development projects are located across upstate New York, from Utica to Buffalo and Watertown to Binghamton. Numerous local organizations wishing to sponsor housing in their communities have engaged Christopher Community as their "housing consultant". More than 70 of these projects remain under our management.
Funding sources used successfully in our projects include the whole range of federal, New York State, local and private programs available for affordable housing. We often coordinate the use of multiple funding sources for a single project. One of our many strengths is researching and using new funding sources for future housing projects.
Christopher Community continues to develop and offer consulting services to other not-for-profits to provide much needed housing for elderly and low-income families in upstate New York.
Housing Choice Voucher Program
We administer the Federal Housing Choice Voucher program (Section 8) and provide referrals to the Department of Social Services.
We provide expert, professional management for subsidized housing across upstate New York.
