For more than six years, New York City-based ArchCare has been working with its sponsor, the Archdiocese of New York, to identify shuttered archdiocesan properties to put to use as residential units for vulnerable populations. This year the long-term care system opened the first such renovation.

What had been a convent adjacent to Staten Island's Church of St. Teresa of the Infant Jesus now is ArchCare at St. Teresa, a 10-unit apartment complex primarily for low-needs adults with autism. The renovation is serving as a model for residential conversions in other New York parishes.
