Shepherd’s Court, which opened in September 2011, is a 7-story building on the new Norwegian Cruise Line Campus of Camillus House, with 80 1-bedroom apartments.
The facility has received LEED Gold certification by the U.S Green Building Council, its second highest rating. It includes a range of green, energy-saving features unusual for a low-cost project. They include high efficiency air conditioning systems, lights run by sensors, and a rooftop of photovoltaic panels that will feed power into the electrical grid. These green measures will make operating the building less expensive, as well as lower electrical costs for tenants, who pay rent and are responsible for their own utility bills.
• All clients must have a history of homelessness and be drug free. 60 of the 80 units are set aside for those clients who are chronically homeless.
• 30% of adjusted gross income client contribution.
• Managed by Crossroads, an external company.
