Rising Family Homelessness in NYC: What Can the New Mayor Do?

Presented by the Center for New York City Affairs at
The New School and the Coalition for the Homeless.

The number of homeless families and children in New York City has reached levels unseen since the Great Depression. There are more than 52,400 homeless people, including 12,500 families with 22,100 children, sleeping each night in the municipal shelter system. Families are the fastest growing segment of the city’s homeless population. Despite the severity of the current crisis, New York City has a strong legacy of successful approaches to family homelessness that the new mayoral administration can build upon. Join us for a discussion about strategies to stem the tide of rising family homelessness.

With:
Ellen Baxter
, executive director, Broadway Housing Communities
Elizabeth Brown, budget and policy analyst, NYC Independent Budget Office
Joshua Goldfein, senior staff attorney, The Legal Aid Society
Patrick Markee
, senior policy analyst, Coalition for the Homeless
Brendan O'Flaherty, professor of economics, Columbia University
Louis Rodriguez, executive director, St. John's Place Family Center and member, Homeless Services United

Moderated by:
Andrew White,
director, Center for New York City Affairs, The New School
