Do Your Part To Help Homeless Street New Yorkers

January 15, 2017

The Department of Homeless Services asks New Yorkers to volunteer for its annual Homeless Outreach Population Estimate to assist the agency and community partners in estimating the number of individuals living on the streets, in parks, subways, and other public spaces across the city. HOPE 2017 will take place on Monday evening, Jan. 23, from 10 p.m. until 4 a.m. Having an accurate count of unsheltered New Yorkers is crucial to combat homelessness, and on the night of HOPE, DHS will need a minimum of 3,000 New Yorkers to collect this data, which is mandated by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development. Those interested in volunteering and participating in an extraordinary citywide effort should visit www.nyc.gov hope to register.
