"Every day, I help hardworking New Yorkers try to find homes they deserve or keep the homes they have. They are parents and people with jobs, yet many are just one emergency away from losing the homes they have. I know this because I work with those parents. I know this because I used to be one of those parents."

—Jessie Garcia - Coalition for the Homeless


More than 58,000 New Yorkers, including over 23,000 children, are sleeping in shelters every night, while another 3,000 sleep on the streets. In staggering numbers, hard-working New Yorkers have lost their homes. Rents have soared while wages have barely budged. Affordable housing is in short supply. As a result, more and more families are struggling to make ends meet and dangerously close to losing their homes.


In 2015, Robin Hood helped nearly 11,000 vulnerable New Yorkers avoid eviction, find emergency shelter, or move into permanent housing. Our support also helped our partners maintain more than 12,000 units of supportive housing across New York City.
