About

The Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center was established in 1987 by the Sisters of Charity of New York. It was founded to provide specialized clinical and rehabilitative services to medically complex children with multiple physical and neurological conditions and disabilities. In March of 2012, the Center relocated from Manhattan to a brand new, state-of-the-art facility in Yonkers, NY. This 165,000 square foot complex serves 137 of New York State’s most medically complex children.

Impact

The loan to Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center helped finance the construction and expansion of the Center to accommodate 32 additional children who are dependent on ventilators. The three-story addition enables the facility to serve a total of 50 ventilator-dependent children and brings the total number of children served by the Center to 169. In addition, the on-site John A. Coleman School added more classrooms to educate these new residents. With the expansion, the Center has hired an additional 100+ employees. The Center is also committed to the environment through its green initiative and building design. The Yonkers facility has been awarded a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold Certification.

On-Site Visit

In 2016, David Sand, chief investment strategist, went on a tour and was impressed with the Center, its level of care for the children, and its commitment to the environment. He learned about the many services offered including clinical, rehabilitation, palliative care, and creative arts therapies.

About

Solabella Apartments is an affordable rental property in Miami Gardens, Florida located in a HUD-designated “Difficult Development Area” with a minority population making up 97% of its census tract. The property consists of 92 townhouse apartment units, 100% of which are restricted to residents with incomes at or below 60% of area median income. Energy conservation features include programmable thermostats, toilets with dual flush options, Energy Star lighting and appliances, and Carpet and Rug Institute Green Label certification. On-site resident programs include first-time home-buyer seminars, welfare-to-work self-sufficiency programs, literacy training, health and nutrition classes, and financial counseling. Health care services such as health screenings, flu shots, and vision and hearing tests are provided by health care professionals.

Impact

South Florida is one of many U.S. regions affected by the collapse in the housing market. Some of the cities within this region, such as those in Miami Gardens, have been identified as the greatest areas of need due to the negative effects of a high number of foreclosed homes. The high foreclosure, vacancy, and high sub-prime mortgage rates in the identified census tracts combined with high unemployment rates make the selected geographic area a top priority for neighborhood stabilization activities.
