SARATOGA SPRINGS – RISE Housing and Support Services is celebrating a year of success at the Adelphi Street Shelter in Saratoga this week.

Served 38,325 meals

Assisted 160 unhoused individuals

Moved 98 individuals to permanent housing

Navigated 799 instances of services requested

Executed an average of a 6 month stay for each individual

The shelter is able to house 34 residents, and there are more than 20 on a waiting list. 

Of the individuals who have transitioned out of the shelter, 23.7% of guests moved into fully independent apartments, 12.9% moved in with friends and/or family, 11.8% moved into housing for either mental health support, or substance use support, and 4.3% moved into Veteran Supported Housing. 

The average length of stay at the shelter for an individual moving into permanent housing is approximately 6 months.

“We so appreciate all that our community partners have done to support RISE in making the County’s first year-round, low-barrier shelter such an overwhelming success,” Lindsey Connors, Associate Executive Director at RISE said in a statement. 

The organization specifically credited community support provided by Sonny and Julie Bonacio and Meg Kelly of Bonacio Development.

“We are eternally grateful to everyone who was able to join us in celebrating all the lives touched and personal progress attained at the shelter throughout the last year,” Connors said.
