Supportive Housing Helping Domestic Violence Survivors and their Children Recover and Thrive in the Bronx

HUD's Office of Policy Development and Research

HUD User publishes a series of case studies based on federal, state, and local strategies that increase affordable housing opportunities and support sustainable community development. The projects and community development efforts featured in these reports have demonstrated innovation through a multitude of partnerships and initiatives.

In New York City, domestic violence is the largest single cause of family homelessness, responsible for 41 percent of shelter entries. Located in the Bronx, The Corden provides supportive services and 62 affordable housing units, with 37 units reserved for families exiting New York City’s domestic violence shelters. Innovative design principles ensure abundant natural light and an enjoyable, usable, landscaped space, creating a comfortable and nurturing environment for residents. The Corden opened in 2021 and received a National Association of Home Builders Best in American Living regional award and an Affordable Housing Finance Readers’ Choice Award.
