Support Solutions, Not Problems

Find out how you can join the CFH Family and be a part of the solutions to homelessness.

The solutions to homelessness are out there and CFH is at the forefront of making them a reality. However, as the saying goes, “It takes a village.” And our village of caring and dedicated staff and volunteers, needs you! Yes, homelessness is traumatic and complex. But we can expand and improve upon existing solutions to homelessness and develop new ones. All of which address those complexities and lift up homeless New Yorkers.

These strides toward a better New York City are thanks to the generosity of people who care. People like you. Our solutions will have an even greater effect with support from 12 of you…and even more with 30! Just think of what we can do with help from 95 or even 200 of you. You can join the CFH Family today and be a part of the CFH solutions to homelessness.

Explore below to see all the ways your generosity is lifting up homeless New Yorkers.
