Neighbors to Save Rivington House

Grant Year:  2017

Grant Type: Neighborhood Grants

Neighbors to Save Rivington House was established to advocate for the return of Rivington House to its original purpose as a long-term 24/7 skilled care nursing home for those in need during the AIDS epidemic while now expanding that care for all who need it. With the sale of the property to a private developer, the group is now focusing on working with the buyers and local elected representatives to find a solution that enables the building’s promised purpose to continue. Over the past 3 ½ years, they’ve hosted events, including a community visioning forum, to explore how to establish a continuum of care in their neighborhood where no one is left out.
