Director’s Message

Welcome to the Saratoga Springs Housing Authority website!

We are located in the historic city of Saratoga Springs, New York often referred to as the “city in the country”. The Saratoga Springs Housing Authority was established in 1952 and has two primary locations. Stonequist Apartments, constructed in 1970 is a 10-story high rise located just blocks from downtown Saratoga and the heart of the business district. Our family sites, Jefferson and Vanderbilt Terraces are located just a few blocks from the historic Saratoga Race Course.

Here at the SSHA we provide safe, decent housing for elderly families and persons with disabilities on fixed incomes as well as working families who are moving towards self-sufficiency. Our staff is dedicated to meeting the needs of our families while assisting the community with implementing the long-term goals for affordable housing. We are currently working to expand our affordable housing stock.

I consider it a privilege to be the Director of this agency and take my responsibilities very seriously. First and foremost of these is ensuring the safety and security of our residents. This is why the SSHA upholds strict lease enforcement standards. We expect our residents to respect not only their neighbors, but the property as well. After all, receiving housing subsidy in this beautiful city is a privilege and should be treated as such. Our residents take pride in their community and do their part in maintaining SSHA property so that we blend in with the surrounding neighborhoods. If you are interested in joining the SSHA community, an application is located on this site for you to download.

Thanks again for visiting our web site. Please use it often and if you have any suggestions for improvement, please contact us at

Due to the number of applicants currently on the SSHA’s Public Housing and Section 8 Waiting Lists and the amount of time an applicant will likely spend waiting for housing, both waiting lists will be closed until further notice.
