Now more than ever, we all understand the importance of home. Thousands are currently at risk of or experiencing homelessness. Now is the time to act.
New York City can end homelessness by redesigning the homeless service system to focus on permanent housing. We need a housing first system that minimizes the role of shelter by proactively giving New Yorkers the support they need to stay in their homes and, if necessary, helps them move into new, affordable permanent housing.
Signing the petition is only the first step. Spread the word to your friends and family too —
We need to change the decades old approach of prioritizing shelter over housing and connect everyone to a home. Join us in building the political will to prevent and end homelessness in New York City!
