More about Geffner House
In 1995, Project Renewal transformed the Holland Hotel, a 21-story/307-unit single room occupancy hotel, into Geffner House. Located on West 42nd Street in Manhattan, Geffner House provides apartments to 246 adults who qualify for housing subsidies, the large majority of whom are formerly homeless individuals coping with substance abuse, mental illness, and/or HIV/AIDS. The remaining 61 units are fair market apartments. Services for the mentally ill and recovering substance abusers include case management, psychiatric care, medical care, crisis intervention, recreational/socialization activities, skill development in activities of daily living, vocational rehabilitation, and assistance with entitlements and legal problems.
