A message from our Executive Director:
FY14 has been an incredibly productive and busy year for Homeless Services United, and we wanted to take a moment to acknowledge and thank our amazing member organizations, who everyday help to address the growing need for emergency shelter and services for New York City's most vulnerable. It is with your boundless enthusiasm, as well as the support of our funders and allies, that Homeless Services United is able to affect the conversation around realistic solutions to the rising crisis of homelessness in New York City.
With the change in City administration, there are tremendous opportunities for strengthening your programs and supporting your staff. HSU will continue working with our partners and allies within the government on City and State level to ensure that those who are currently homeless have access to vital homeless services. We must ensure that providers can continue to offer high-end quality programs and retain and recruit the dedicated and valuable workforce necessary to run these programs.
We look forward to working closely with you in the coming months, as we continue efforts to meet the most immediate needs of New York City's homeless populations while working for a future in which fewer households experience the crisis on homelessness.
Christy Parque, MSW
Giving Thanks this Holiday Season
As the holidays are upon us, it's important to take time to reflect and give thanks for what we have.
Homeless Services United is extremely grateful to the wonderful men and women that work at our coalition's member organizations, who everyday make a difference in the lives of the over 58,000 homeless New Yorkers in shelter.
We would also like to thank everyone who donated to HSU's first Giving Tuesday campaign, on December 2nd, 2014. We were warmed by your generous support and kind words of encouragement for HSU and the work that we do.
We will keep the campaign up through New Year's in case you missed the initial drive, but would still like to be a part of this campaign.
Your support will help create improved public policies and secure much needed services to support our dedicated and compassionate workforce, that strive to see every man, woman, and child stably housed.
Together, we can create real solutions to New York City's homeless crisis.Join HSU's Giving Tuesday campaign
