Capitol Hall

Capitol Hall provides housing for men and women who are vulnerable to homelessness because of their age, income or disability.

A 10-story building, Capitol Hall includes 202 single-room occupancy units, as well as offices and community space. Our staff provides daily meals, case management, recreational activities, holiday celebrations, 24-hour/7-day front-desk security and more, while keeping tenant privacy and independence paramount.

One of the first supportive housing residences in New York City, Capitol Hall was developed by Goddard Riverside, the Settlement Housing Fund and the West 87th Street Block Association, beginning in the late 1970s. Many of its tenants are referred by our Homeless Outreach program.

Capitol Hall underwent a total renovation from 2013 to 2015 that provided tenants with their own private baths and kitchens and restored the building's historic beauty.
