The Partnership for the Homeless is committed to fostering a just society and creating lasting community change through the development of solution-oriented programs and policy initiatives that will eliminate the root causes of homelessness. The Partnership began in 1982 as a single shelter in a Manhattan church. Today, The Partnership's public/ private collaborations, direct service programs, and advocacy help families and individuals make the successful transition from New York streets to permanent housing, skilled jobs, and self-sufficiency. Our success lies in a two-pronged approach; direct services that help individuals and families overcome poverty and homelessness; and advocacy that addresses the societal problems at the root of today's rampant homelessness.
