Stephan Russo Residence

Helping people move off the streets—for good

Our Stephan Russo Residence at 235 West 107th Street is slated to open in late 2024 or early 2025, offering 54 beds for men and women exiting street homelessness. An additional 14 beds will provide affordable housing to low-income tenants, including the handful of people currently living in the building. We’re partnering on this exciting project with Rockabill Development, a leading development partner and consultant to nonprofit owners of affordable, supportive and transitional housing.

The Stephan Russo Residence will be permanent housing, not a shelter. It will provide social services to help formerly unhoused people recover from the trauma of life outdoors, including case managers, social and wellness activities, and harm reduction, as well as access to physical and mental health care.

This former Single Room Occupancy (SRO) building will be renovated to remove shared restrooms and provide an en suite bathroom for each tenant.

The residence is named after former Goddard Riverside Executive Director Stephan Russo, an innovator in the fight against homelessness who helped create the supportive housing model.
