About The Partnership for the Homeless

The Partnership is striving to create a world where housing is embraced as a human right.

We believe homelessness is solvable, and prevention is the best way to solve homelessness. Preventing eviction and immediate homelessness through rental assistance, legal referrals, landlord mediation and tenant education keeps families safely housed. Preventing ongoing risk of homelessness by offering families health and trauma-informed mental health services makes it possible for families to achieve lasting stability. Preventing barriers to children’s access to education and school, by keeping their families housed today, disrupts the generational cycle of homelessness and prevents homelessness in the long term.

We serve New Yorkers experiencing, at risk of, or recovering from homelessness. This includes people of any ability, age, family type, gender, national origin, race and sexual orientation.


Our Values are our North Star

Compassion, Inclusion, Integrity, Professionalism, Social Justice.
