We are thrilled to announce that through a partnership with Ulster County Executive Pat Ryan, Family of Woodstock Inc and Catholic Charities of Orange, Sullivan, and Ulster, NY, that the Quality Inn on Route 28 in the Town of Ulster, will be renovated to provide supportive housing for families and individuals.
The hotel’s 145 rooms would be converted to approximately eighty apartments with kitchen and other amenities to help address the critical need to provide housing to those most vulnerable. In addition, wrap-around services including health and mental health care, career counseling and job training, childcare, and support for finding permanent housing will be provided at the site. The ability to provide all of these services onsite will greatly accelerate residents’ ability to secure sustainable, permanent housing. The hotel restaurant will be renovated to serve both residents and the community and may be used for job training opportunities.
Coming out of the pandemic, Ulster County will continue to do everything that we can to assist those most vulnerable among us. No one in our community should go homeless, ever. These new apartments, along with all the supportive services, will allow our residents to live with dignity and pride while accessing critical services and support during a difficult time.
