Home Stability Support

The Home Stability Support

150,000

That’s the number of children homeless in New York State. Another 80,000 families are on the brink of homelessness and, every year, 19,000 more people enter a state of homelessness than escape out of it.

We’re facing a crisis of epidemic proportions. We need common-sense, fiscally-sound solutions to a problem that already costs taxpayers billions, one that threatens to keep thousands of New Yorkers from living healthy, productive lives.

That’s where Home Stability Support seeks to make a difference. Click here to learn about this innovative approach to combating homelessness and lend your voice to our growing coalition today!

BRC, The Bowery Residents Committee

The Bowery Residents Committee: We believe that human relationships are as important as physical environment to solving the challenges faced by the people we serve. By recognizing that each of our clients has unique needs and strengths, and by treating each person with dignity and respect, and expecting the same in return, we are able to successfully empower those we serve to achieve and maintain a healthier and more independent life. We do this by listening, by meeting people where they’re at, and by empowering them to be a force of change in their own lives.

Coalition For The Homeless

coalition-homelessCoalition For The Homeless

The Coalition for the Homeless is the nation’s oldest advocacy and direct service organization helping homeless men, women and children. We believe that affordable housing, sufficient food and the chance to work for a living wage are fundamental rights in a civilized society. Since our inception in 1981, the Coalition has worked through litigation, public education and direct services to ensure that these goals are realized.

Every day, our 11 frontline programs help more than 3,500 men, women and children survive immediate crises and help them on the path to long-term stability. We witness firsthand the challenges they face and shape our services to best meet their needs, providing emergency food and clothing, eviction prevention, crisis services, permanent housing, job training and special programs for homeless youth.
