ICPH Releases On the Map: The Atlas of Family Homelessness in New York City


For the first time, the facts about family homelessness in New York City have been pulled together into one place. The Institute for Children, Poverty, and Homelessness has released On the Map: The Atlas of Family Homelessness in New York City, a new, easy-to-use resource that looks at the extent of family homelessness in each New York City Council District, and ranks each District by the number of family shelter units they offer. The Atlas also takes a look at the factors that drive family instability, and in ever increasing numbers, homelessness. Read more in our report.
