Louis Nine House, located in the Bronx, has 46 studio apartments for young adults (aged 18-25) who are homeless or have aged out of foster care. Many of our tenants have experienced multiple foster care placements, emotional trauma, neglect and/or abuse, and many also struggle with mental illness and substance use.

At Louis Nine House we provide affordable housing and an integrated continuum of support services designed to help young adults achieve stability, maintain sobriety, and work toward the self-sufficiency needed to obtain and sustain permanent housing and independence. Through case management; onsite psychiatric services; and OPTIONS, our vocational and educational program housed at LNH, residents are supported to advance their personal development, pursue their education, identify career interests, acquire vocational skills, and secure employment.

Aim High with the Arts! (AHA!), an arts program located at LNH, uses music, visual arts, performances and other forms of self-expression to engage residents and encourage their participation in personal and professional development activities.
