A vacant schoolhouse in Verona is being will be rehabilitated into 50 apartments, 15 of which will be for homeless seniors, and it will also include a senior center.

Catholic Charities of Oneida and Madison Counties received $2.3 million to rehabilitate a building in Utica into an emergency youth shelter for 11 homeless and at-risk youth, ages 12-18, on the first two floors of the building. The third floor will be rehabilitates into three full-furnished, one-bedroom apartments for men ages 18-24.

“Making sure those who may find themselves in a vulnerable situation have access to good, safe and quality housing and shelter is a very important endeavor,” said state Sen. Joseph Griffo in a news release. “Altogether, these projects will create over 100 housing units for those in need, while the projects in Utica and Verona also will rehabilitate existing buildings in each community.
