Who We Help

Chadwick Residence accepts referrals from Central New York homeless shelters, social service agencies, churches and schools, accommodating women at risk and their children.

This includes women with mental health issues, victims of domestic violence and those struggling with substance abuse. Chadwick Residence offers a drug- and alcohol-free living space, where residents are required to participate in educational programming and demonstrate a healthy lifestyle.

We house women and their children for up to two years and help with the transition to independent living. Chadwick Supported Apartments provide a path for next steps after residents move on from the main community.

Chadwick Residence assisted more than 125 women between 2010 and 2015.

• 82 percent suffered with mental health issues
• 58 percent were victims of domestic violence
•39 percent struggled with substance abuse

Residents also deal with medical issues or physical disabilities (38 percent) as well as developmental or learning difficulties (21 percent).

Chadwick Residence continuously proves its success with individuals like these, including 60 percent who’ve found permanent housing and 36 percent moving on to temporary situations. Only 4 percent were discharged back to shelters.
