Home is Hope PSA and Statement


Forty years ago, the Coalition for the Homeless secured the legal right to shelter for New Yorkers without homes, creating a baseline of decency in our city

We need now to build on that baseline, because people need homes.

For home is where hope lives.

The hope for a better future.

The hope for safety, security, and stability.

The hope to succeed in school.

The hope for good health, and a long happy life.

The hope for a decent job.

The hope that our kids will grow, and thrive.

The hope to be seen not as a problem, but as a human.

The hope to have a fair chance in this great city: The city that made a promise 40 years ago that no one should have to live, or die, on our streets.

With housing comes hope.

And everyone should have the right to hope.
