Addressing Homelessness in New York City
The city was already experiencing record homelessness among single adults when the pandemic began and the crisis has only grown.
We know homelessness is not a choice, but the result of decades of harmful policies that have deprioritized and harmed low-income New Yorkers. The City currently spends billions of dollars a year on its shelter programs instead of adequately investing in permanent affordable and supportive housing.
We strive to stand with other faith-based organizations and people experiencing homelessness to call for dignified responses and equitable solutions to addressing homelessness in our city.
