Birch Arms

As rents continue to soar – even in urban areas like Paterson – homelessness continues to grow. Imagine how difficult it is for many to deal with homelessness, while also struggling with mental illness.

Birch Arms provides housing and supportive services to formerly chronically homeless individuals diagnosed with mental illness. Located in a quiet cul-de-sac on Birch Street in Paterson, the property remains indistinguishable from existing market rate housing in the community. With 15 studio apartments equipped with private kitchens and full bathrooms, the building includes common laundry facilities, a multi-purpose common room, resident lounges, high speed internet access, outdoor green and garden space, a security desk, and controlled-access entry.

Residents of Birch Arms are encouraged to participate in supportive social services provided by NJCDC, which are designed to foster independent living.

To reduce the building's environmental impact and energy costs, Birch Arms was constructed using Energy Star standards. Additionally, an 18-kilowatt photovoltaic array sits on the roof and produces electricity to reduce our carbon footprint.
