Concern is pleased to have partnered with the Leviticus Fund to develop housing for Veterans on Long Island. Leviticus Fund provided gap financing totaling $735,624 for the development of Liberty Landing in Lake Ronkonkoma.
“A safe, affordable place to call home goes a long way to promote the dignity and confidence of an individual, especially someone who has experienced the fear of being homeless,” said Greg Maher, Executive Director of the Leviticus Fund. “Leviticus applauds the efforts of Concern to tackle this critical issue of homelessness among veterans and to work collaboratively with other local agencies to create a more comprehensive safety net for those in need.”
Liberty Landing, which opened in July, 2016, offers 59 apartments for Veterans and families in need of affordable housing in Lake Ronkonkoma. The project includes one- and two-bedroom apartments, as well as a community center with exercise room and library. Staff are on-site to provide supportive services that enhance skills and increase independence.
