Since 1997 Shelters of Saratoga has been designated by the NYS Department of Housing and Community Renewal as an agency that can revitalize local neighborhoods by assisting low-income citizens of Saratoga Springs with housing rehabilitation and repairs which, if not resolved, might cause the homes to become unsafe or uninhabitable, resulting in homelessness.

The properties promote independent, permanent and safe housing. During a tenant’s occupancy, should they be in need of assistance with transportation, nutritional, medical or financial needs, SOS staff will gladly assist them in arranging for support services.
