We deliver holistic programming and resource linkage to residents at a local affordable housing complex, The Rochester Highlands. Programming for residents includes case and resource management, nursing services, educational workshops, exercise instruction and child programming.
How does the affordable housing program work?
We provide assistance to individual residents at The Rochester Highlands such as help with or linkage to benefits, resumes/employment assistance, Section 8, referrals to legal services, and community nonprofit organizations. Residents also have access to nursing services and an on-site food cupboard for those experiencing food insecurity. While programming serves all residents, additional services meet the cultural and traditional needs of Jewish residents – for example events and food distribution for Jewish holidays.
Residents may sign-up at the Community Center for the latest educational offerings and groups. Our workshops/groups are currently focused on financial, literacy, health, gardening, nutrition, and more.
A Resident Planning Committee plays an instrumental role in guiding our programming. If you are interested in joining the Resident Planning Committee, contact Mandy Hartman at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (585) 216-1887 ext. 2.
The Community Center is open Monday – Friday. Hours vary based on programming.
