The Brook, Breaking Ground’s first supportive residence in the Bronx, is a six-story residence that plays a key role in revitalizing the surrounding community. The 190-unit building includes ground floor community and retail space and provides permanent supportive housing to low-income workers, people with HIV/AIDS, and chronically homeless individuals, including individuals with mental illness. Bronxworks provides on-site support services.
Residents began moving into The Brook on January 20, 2010 and a ribbon cutting ceremony was held on June 2, 2010. The building received LEED Silver certification in March 2013.
