After 16 years at the Ridgewood Bushwick Senior Citizens Council, Scott Short took the reins of the organization and promptly rebranded it. The housing and health care nonprofit, created by late Albany power broker Vito Lopez, is now RiseBoro Community Partnership.
What is your coverage area, and where do you want to expand?
Historically it has been very focused on Bushwick, though we have been providing home care and Meals on Wheels throughout Brooklyn and parts of Queens for more than 20 years. We operate senior centers in Bed-Stuy, Brownsville and East New York, and develop and manage housing across northern Brooklyn. Recently we acquired a Bronx development site in Woodlawn and were awarded the 1,100-unit Hunter’s Point South mixed-income development along with the Gotham Organization. We also won the right to develop a senior housing project in Nolita.
