Interesting Fact
Born out of the urban homesteading movement in 1983, Nazareth Housing provides 29 units of transitional housing to homeless families with dependent children on the Lower East Side and the Bronx. In fiscal year 2014 53 families were hosted in our shelter units each night, including 160 children.
