“This project adds thirty-two beds to our permanent supportive housing inventory for families in the Eighth District,” said Councilmember Marqueece Harris-Dawson. “The teams at FlyawayHomes and The People Concern understand the urgency of homelessness and continue to respond with innovative solutions for the built environment and compassion. This is an investment in people, a community asset, and a commitment to change in the surrounding neighborhood.”

On Wednesday, July 28, FlyawayHomes, in conjunction with its partner The People Concern, announced the opening of a 32-bed permanent supportive housing community at 837 West 82nd Street. These units will house and provide case management for its residents. At the time of its unveiling on Wednesday, the new name of the project site was announced. It will be known as the Ray Grutzmacher Family Community. The site was named after the former partner of The People Concern CEO, John Maceri.


The project is comprised of 54 converted shipping containers to create 16 two-bedroom units. The property will also have common areas, a laundry, and outdoor spaces. Flyaway Homes is a leader in scalable and innovative housing solutions.

The families who live here will have access to supportive services through The People Concern. This non-profit organization provides outreach, mental and medical health care, substance abuse services, domestic violence services, life skills, and wellness programs for those with high-service needs.

FlyawayHomes, in collaboration with The People Concern, work together to scale their solution for ending homelessness by reducing the cost and increasing the speed of development of permanent supportive housing.
