Are you homeless?

It won’t be wrong to say that New York has a record number of homeless people. So many of them are jobless and don’t even have money to buy food, which is why they live in shelter homes and continue facing a wide range of challenges.

A report shows that in December 2022, more than 68,000 homeless people were sleeping in shelter systems. Out of these, up to 22,000 were children. The worst part is that the problem of homelessness is faced by people all over the state. In some areas or cities, their number is higher than in others. (Source)

I have already talked about several relief programs that we can take advantage of in one way or the other. A couple of examples are shared below.

  1. Empire State Fellows Program
  2. Home Energy Assistance Program
  3. Housing Choice Voucher Program
  4. Access to Home Program

If you are homeless, belong to New York City, and are on the lookout for affordable housing, there is a unique program for you. Please check the details of the Homeless Assistance Fund Program.

The Homeless Assistance Fund Program for New Yorkers
