2021 Project: Back to School


To maintain COVID-19 safety precautions, Project: Back to School is once again asking for monetary donations so that we can purchase and fill more than 2,500 new backpacks with essential supplies for homeless schoolkids throughout the five boroughs. A simple donation can make all the difference in giving a homeless child the tools needed to start the school year off right. Download the flyer here.

Just $20 will allow us to provide one child with a backpack full of school supplies.



The Coalition for the Homeless provides eviction prevention, crisis services, permanent housing, job training, youth programs, and items such as food, clothing, and PPE to New Yorkers without homes. We also fight tirelessly for the systemic changes need to eradicate mass homelessness once and for all. Since 1981, more than one million homeless New Yorkers have found a way off the streets thanks to the Coalition.
