Volunteers of America cut ribbon on new supportive housing apartments

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Seven new supportive housing apartments are ready for residents.

The Volunteers of America Thursday cut the ribbon on the VOA’s Cooper Union facility located on State Street in Rochester.

Homeless individuals and veterans in need of a home will have access to on-site support.

The apartments were made possible by a $1.25 million grant from New York State’s Homeless Housing Assistance Corporation and a $60,000 grant from The Home Depot Foundation.
