Recap: groundbreaking ceremony for St. John's Episcopal supportive housing project!

On April 28th, we celebrated the kickoff of the St. John's Episcopal conversion project with a formal groundbreaking ceremony at the site on the corner of Palisade Avenue and 15th Street in Union City. We are so excited to oversee the restoration of this historic 167-year-old site, and to add 13 units of much-needed supportive housing to the community!

In attendance were Mayor Brian P. Stack of Union City, Hudson County Executive Thomas A. DeGise, Bishop Mark Beckwith of the Episcopal Diocese of Newark, Reverend Tom Murphy of St. Paul's Episcopal in Jersey City, Anthony Marchetta, Executive Director of the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency, and Annmarie C. Uebbing, Director CPD of the US Department of Housing and Urban Development - Newark Field Office.

More about the project: This project involves the adaptive reuse of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Union City, New Jersey. Excluding the rectory and worship space, Garden State Episcopal CDC will develop 13 units of permanent supportive housing for people with special needs. The development plan works within the structure so as not to disturb neighborhood character and preserve the architectural history of the building. The unit mix will be 7 one-bedroom apartments and 6 studios. This project will focus on outfitting the church basement, school and gym into units that range in size from 350 to 680 square feet. The project involves vouchers from the Shelter Plus Program for 8 of the 13 units.

We would like to extend our endless thanks to all supporters and sponsors of this wonderful project! 

"In Union City, we're not only excited about this project, we want all those projects - anything with affordable housing, special needs housing senior housing. We're all for it a thousand percent.  . . . that's what built Union City and made it what it is today. Hard-working people, hard-working families, people just trying to make their ends meet." - Mayor Brian P. Stack

Congrats to proud new Jersey City homeowner Reverend Bertha Reels!

New Homeowner Testimonial

I would sincerely like to thank GSECDC for the opportunity to become a first time home buyer in Jersey City.  A few years prior, to purchasing my new home, I did not believe that I would experience home ownership in Jersey City. Real estate in Jersey City had climbed, so drastically; that I felt that owning a home in a city that I love was out of my reach.  Then along came GSECDC with affordable housing right in Jersey City.  I was so excited when I saw the huge sign on Cator Ave, which read, new 2 family affordable homes for sale.  I quickly gave GSECDC a call and the staff at GSECDC began to immediately assist me in making my dream come true.  I was easily walked through the process by professional staff and I am now the proud owner of a beautiful, new 2 family home.  I love my gorgeous kitchen with its stainless steel appliances, spacious living room/dining room, laundry room, 3 bed rooms and two large bathrooms. The enormous back yard allows me to have great cook outs, while entertaining my large family and friends.  I just want to say thank you GSECDC for helping me to fulfill my dream as a home owner and landlord.
