Cornell, Ithaca College effort moves housing project forward
By Kathy Hovis
Research from a team of Cornell and Ithaca College faculty and students provided key insights to Tompkins County legislators as they recently approved funding for a new housing program to help formerly incarcerated people.
Two houses of the Sunflower Housing program, a collaboration between Opportunities, Alternatives and Resources of Tompkins County (OAR); Ithaca Neighborhood Housing Services (INHS); and Ultimate Re-Entry Opportunity for Tompkins County (URO), will open next month with up to 12 residents, nine men and three women.
