A special thanks to the NYC Department of Homeless Services (DHS). The majority of our funding is through the DHS Homebase program, which is a nationally recognized homeless prevention model and finalist for the Harvard Innovations in American Government Award.

If you are homeless or fear you may become homeless, contact one of our three HomeBase service providing offices within your community. Or call 311 and ask to be connected to the nearest homelessness prevention office.
