Innovative Flushing collaborative will help ensure access to transitional housing for underserved families with children
It is an unfortunate reality that traditional affordable housing is out of reach for many of our most vulnerable families. It’s a big reason why they need transitional housing, where they can benefit not only from a safe and secure apartment, but also comprehensive services available to residents to help them get back on their feet.
Vulnerable Flushing children are hurting and they need our help
Beneath the hustle and bustle in downtown Flushing lies the harsh reality that too many Asian families are struggling to survive. They are hard-working, but under-employed, not earning enough to afford an apartment with a lease. Instead, they live in overcrowded and illegally-converted housing, renting rooms – and even beds – in basements and garages.
Transitional Housing is essential if we're serious about ending Flushing's housing crisis
In Community Board 7, more than 20,000 Asian families are living below the poverty line. They are doubled and tripled up with relatives, in basement apartments, unstably housed and just a paycheck away from losing shelter. The transitional housing at Magnolia Gardens will not only give them a safe and secure private apartment, but also services to help them find a job, stabilize their finances and create a pathway to permanent affordable housing.
