Quaranta Housing Services helps Chenango neighbors in need

NORWICH Quaranta Housing Services, a subdivision of Opportunities for Chenango, is seeking out county residents in need of assistance in an effort to continue its mission of supporting families through new and ongoing programs that offer housing security.

Nearly 22.5 percent of Chenango County residents live in mobile homes the highest percentage in New York State, according to the 2000 U.S. census. To accommodate the growing needs of mobile home residents in the county, Quaranta acquired funding through the New York State Home Program that let them replace seven manufactured homes for low-income households in 2011 and approve the replacement of another four homes in 2012.

According to Quaranta Chief Housing Program Director Karen Glasbergen, the agency sometimes struggles to prove the need for state and federal funding and is fortunate to be in one of only four New York counties to get this money.
