ICPH Testimony at City Council Hearing on Homeless Students 2/4/16


Good afternoon. My name is Jennifer Erb-Downward, Principal Policy Analyst with the Institute for Children, Poverty and Homelessness (ICPH). ICPH is is an independent, New York City-based public policy organization that works on the issues of poverty and homelessness. The issue of student homelessness is complex and the numbers are stark. In the 2013-14 school year there were approximately 84,000 homeless students in New York City. Specifically, more than 28,000 lived in the city’s shelter system, and another roughly 49,000 doubled up with family or friends because of economic hardship, and approximately 7,000 are living in some other temporary location. The number of homeless students in New York City is equal to the total population of Trenton, New Jersey.
