Coalition for the Homeless Praises Senate and Assembly for Including Home Stability Support in Budget Proposals

The following statement can be attributed to Shelly Nortz, Deputy Executive Director for Policy:

“Home Stability Support is the single most important thing Albany can do this year to address the homelessness crisis in New York State, which affects more than 250,000 men, women, and children each year. This sensible program could help keep nearly 80,000 families in their homes or in escaping homelessness, and it would pay for itself by reducing evictions, shortening shelter stays, and reducing other social and public service costs of displacement.  We thank the Senate and Assembly for including HSS in their budget proposals, and we call on Governor Cuomo to join them in supporting the best tool we have to fight homelessness.”
