As we noted in last week's email, momentum is beginning to build for the establishment of the NYNY 4 agreement to produce 30,000 supportive housing units for the most vulnerable New Yorkers over the next ten years.  We need to convince Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio that New Yorkers strongly support this utilization of public resources to help those in our family least able to fend for themselves. We encourage you to bring this effort to attention of your community and invite them to consider adding their name as an endorsing organization.


Campaign for NY/NY 4

Housing New York's Most Vulnerable 

A significant portion of the nearly 60,000 homeless New Yorkers and the many tens of thousands at risk of homelessness are among our most vulnerable brothers and sisters - and often the most difficult to house due to their limited financial resources and social service needs.

 

JOIN THE MOVEMENT: 

 

We ask you and your community to join the nearly 200 endorsing organizations  in joining this effort and adding your community's name to this list. At this point only 10% of the endorsing agencies are faith based - Please help us to increase this number substantially and demonstrate New York's faith communities' commitment to our most vulnerable New Yorkers. We will be reaching out to you for your help as this campaign builds.  In the mean time, please do not hesitate to let us know if you would like to get involved. 




Let's work together in 2015 in Building a Better City for those most in need. Together we will make a difference!
