Stamford's Shelter for the Homeless celebrated the opening of a new affordable housing unit this afternoon.  The shelter's executive director says the renovated home on Ann St. has room for seven formerly homeless individuals.  

Rafael Pagan says the home is deeply affordable housing.  Meaning residents earning 30 percent or below the City's median income qualify.

He says forty percent of the shelter's clients are employed -- but says on average it's a costly $1,200-a-month price tag for a one bedroom Stamford apartment, which is difficult for the working homeless.  

Here, he says residents will pay -- on average -- $236 per month, depending on their income.

Today officials applauded those at the state and local levels supporting the project.

Pagan says soon, there will be four homes like this one in Stamford and two in Norwalk.
