It 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 was able to affect the conversation around realistic solutions to the rising crisis of homelessness in New York City.
In 2013 we have:
- Served as the lead agency for the newly founded coalition and New York Times Editorial Board endorsed campaign, United to End Homelessness. Over 130 organizations and faith communities came together to develop a platform and comprehensive roadmap for Mayor-elect de Blasio and his administration to tackle and end the homeless crisis.
- Implemented, with our terrific board of directors, an organizational strategic plan to keep us on track to protecting and increasing the resources to help homeless New Yorkers escape homelessness.
- Convened a state-wide meeting of New York State funded homeless prevention providers in Albany to share best practices and plan for the coming year’s budget advocacy campaign.
- Relocated HSU’s offices to become one of Gay Men’s Health Crisis’ Community Partners.
- Developed a new professional training curriculum for the homeless services sector staff and have received State and City funded to conduct trainings.
- Revamped our website—look for the launch of our new and improved website in early 2014!
