Family Homelessness Coalition Statement In Response To Gov. Cuomo’s 2020 State of the State


January 10, 2020

We urge the State to commit to combating homelessness for the tens of thousands of women raising their children inside homeless shelters in New York City. Ending the crisis of family homelessness requires bold solutions and the State must do its part to ensure the 70% of shelter residents who are women and children have a viable pathway towards housing stability. To do this, the State must expand rental assistance and transitional housing supports for families experiencing homelessness, and ensure that survivors of domestic violence, the leading cause of family homelessness, have access to critical preventive and permanent housing services to keep them and their children stably and safely housed.
