Affordable & Supportive Housing

New York City’s notorious shortage of affordable housing is one of the largest barriers to economic independence. Without access to safe, stable housing, New York’s most vulnerable populations are at even greater risk of becoming homeless. 


That’s why The Doe Fund has been developing high-quality, affordable homes since 1996 to support individuals with long histories of poverty, homelessness, substance abuse, physical disabilities, mental illness, and HIV/AIDS.


In 2019, The Doe Fund was included in Affordable Housing Finance‘s Top 50 Affordable Housing Developers. See where we operate and find additional information on each of our housing facilities below.

The Doe Fund currently operates and is developing over one million square feet of permanent and transitional housing for New Yorkers.
