In 2002, Safe Harbors purchased the historic Hotel Newburgh at 111 Broadway in the City of Newburgh, New York. This once luxurious hotel destination had devolved into crime and drug infested, sub-standard housing for many of Newburgh’s struggling and disenfranchised residents.
In 2004, with state, federal and county support, Safe Harbors transformed the Hotel Newburgh into the Cornerstone Residence—safe, supportive and well-designed permanent housing for 128 of our neighbors, including those living with mental health diagnoses and physical disabilities, veterans, the formerly homeless, artists in need of affordable live-work space and low and very low income working adults.
This unique housing opportunity offers many amenities and programs designed to engage and enhance the lives of our residents and community members. On-site support services and job training is provided by Safe Harbors partner Independent Living, an advocacy and service organization dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for persons with disabilities. The Cornerstone facility includes a fitness center, library and computer lab. With our partner SUNY Orange, Safe Harbors offers a free GED program for our residents and community members. Field trips, special events and programs throughout the year make for a vibrant, inclusive community.
The Cornerstone also houses several multi-use spaces that may be utilized by residents and rented by community members for special events of all kinds. For information about space rental, please click here
