Throughout the pandemic, Northeastern Conference has responded to the needs of the community with compassion. This includes the completion of the Northeastern Towers Annex, a 158-unit affordable housing complex for senior citizens.
The ribbon cutting ceremony was hosted by the project’s partners – Northeastern Conference of Seventh-day Adventists (NEC), Fifth Avenue Committee (FAC), and Mega Development. General Conference President Ted Wilson, accompanied by North American Division President Alex Bryant led out in the ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Northeastern Towers Annex. Pastor Wilson, opened the ceremony by noting the importance of creating housing for seniors that creates a sense of stability and community for seniors at all income levels. Also in attendance were the administrators of the Atlantic Union Conference and the Greater New York Conference.
Dr. Daniel Honoré, President of the Northeastern Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, noted the success of this unique partnership; “We are delighted to know that 158 elderly residents of New York City are assured a safe, clean and affordable place to live. One third were previously homeless. The Seventh-day Adventist Church is committed to serving the needs of our community and the Northeastern Towers Annex reflects that commitment.”
