Greenpoint Men’s Shelter

Brooklyn, New York

This project transforms the historic Greenpoint Hospital, which has been closed since 1982, into a mixed-use development. The new Greenpoint Men’s Shelter is part of the larger, holistic redevelopment of the historic Greenpoint Hospital campus that will also feature more than 500 homes for seniors and low-income New Yorkers. The shelter will provide 200 men with vocational training and job placements, and other targeted services to help them get back on their feet and into permanent homes.

“Project Renewal is thrilled to partner with Hudson Companies and St. Nicks Alliance on the innovative Greenpoint Hospital campus, a development that will bring much-needed housing stability and healthy living to families and seniors, as well as shelter and support services to homeless men,” said Jody Rudin, Interim President & CEO, Project Renewal. “Project Renewal has been helping New Yorkers renew their lives for more than 50 years. The homeless shelter at Cooper Park Commons will be our second shelter in Brooklyn and our eighth citywide. As we develop this shelter, we look forward to compassionately providing our new clients with the targeted services they need to break the cycle of homelessness.”
