Transitional Housing & Placement Services

Phipps Neighborhoods operates two Tier II transitional housing shelters through contracts with the NYC Department of Homeless Services. Families are referred to the shelters by the New York City Department of Homeless Services (DHS) and assisted by Phipps Neighborhoods housing specialists to locate affordable, permanent homes. Phipps Neighborhoods shelters have a solid record of successfully placing families in homes and have been recognized by DHS for strong performance. Referrals are only accepted from DHS for transitional & supportive housing.

On-site support services include:

  • Childcare
  • Life skills
  • Medical and mental health referrals
  • Recreational programming
  • Education and employment assistance to help parents achieve economic independence and self-sufficiency

Please Note: Phipps Neighborhoods does not provide housing opportunities for individuals who contact our organization. All referrals for transitional housing and supportive housing come directly from the New York City Department of Homeless Services. Following DHS policies and procedures, no phone calls or emails will be accepted regarding this matter.
