HUD Director of Project Management in the New York Office of Multifamily Housing, Stacey Schrager, recently joined the Southside United HDFC (also known as Los Sures) and the New York State Housing Finance Agency (HFA), plus numerous local, business and civic leaders at a ribbon cutting to celebrate the renovation of a senior citizens housing complex in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

The senior housing complex at 201 Roebling Street was originally built in 1916, and has since undergone a number of major renovations that have transformed it into a vibrant living space for its senior residents. In addition to remodeling the apartment units, common areas, and side yard, an inspirational mural was painted in the main lobby with the participation of some of the residents led by artists from Groundswell, a collaborative arts organization that utilized residents' input from conceptualization to installation. HUD provided funding for the renovations and is providing income eligible senior residents with rental subsidies.

Los Sures is a community-based, non-profit organization that has served as an integral part in rebuilding the South Side of Williamsburg, Brooklyn for over 40 years. It provides affordable housing, community organizing and social services, including a food pantry.
