30 Years of Innovation
2018 marked our 30-year anniversary of advocating for supportive housing and building a community of nonprofits who are working tirelessly to end homelessness in New York.
We’re especially grateful to all the visionaries, founders and problem-solvers who, with their passion for helping the most vulnerable New Yorkers, have made supportive housing what it is today.
