The Baxter

Elmhurst, Queens

The Baxter, our Safe Haven in Elmhurst, Queens, opened in January 2021 at reduced capacity due to COVID-19. Eventually it will house some 75 people transitioning from living on the streets to permanent housing.

The Baxter will provide each resident with their own bed and personal space that is available to them 24 hours a day. It will also offer nutritious meals, psychiatric and medical services, case management, help reconnecting with community and family, and help securing permanent housing.
