The Second Wind Dryden House will be a multi-unit residential facility dedicated to house, and walk with homeless and at-risk adult women and their children towards restored lives.


In the fall of 2019, a fire damaged house located at 35 W. Main Street in Dryden NY was donated to Second Wind.  A team of passionate Dryden residents quickly formed that shared interest in creating a SW space for women!  Through months of research and navigation through shut-downs due to COVID-19, it was decided demolition and rebuilding was the path forward. Demolition is scheduled to be completed in August of 2020. Drawings and zoning variances are in process for the new building.
