Care for the Homeless has actively advocated on behalf of homeless people in New York City since its creation in 1985.


Care for the Homeless actively tracks trends and developments affecting homeless people, develops policy initiatives and advocates on public policy issues affecting people experiencing homelessness and those at risk of homelessness. Our public policy analysis and advocacy educates elected officials, other policy makers and the public on important issues and trends confronting homeless people. Care for the Homeless is active with advocacy partners and coalitions at the national, state and local levels advocating for high-quality patient-centered health care and social services for our homeless clients and the rights, inclusion and dignity of homeless individuals and families. We are committed to actively involving our clients, staff and Board in our policy development and advocacy efforts and building public support on behalf of homeless people.

Our policy and advocacy efforts, and leadership and participation with coalitions and advocacy organizations provide an important voice for homeless people in New York City, Albany and Washington. Recent policy newsletters, updates and other items are available on this site.
