Project Description

Homelessness is Avoidable.

We believe that helping a family avoid eviction is a moral obligation. Homelessness has far-reaching traumatic effects that can disrupt a child’s development, undermine a family’s stability, and continue to adversely affect an individual even after their homelessness has ended. We believe it is our responsibility to help keep our neighbors from experiencing this trauma whenever possible.

Preventing eviction is also economically prudent. It costs more than $44,000 a year to shelter a family and more than $35,000 for an individual. We provide an average of $1,000 in rent arrears assistance to individuals and families. We believe that the financial investment is a small price to pay to help a family achieve stability and to save taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars each year.

We also provide additional forms of assistance on a case-by-case basis, including the first month rent on an apartment for families moving out of shelter, utilities, phone bills, Internet, and other necessities, and MetroCards for various types of appointments or employment/training opportunities.
