Win is the largest provider of shelter and supportive housing for NYC’s homeless families.


We’re running the NYC marathon to support the thousands of homeless families at Win.


Op-ed by Christine Quinn: Lay out a multi-year shelter plan, and gear programs to help families in deep need.


70% of homeless New Yorkers are families with children.

New York City is facing a homeless crisis on a scale never before seen. And, despite the perception to the contrary, a disproportionate number of the homeless are actually families, most of them led by women. These mothers, aunts, grandmothers and sisters – many of whom have fled domestic violence – are the forgotten faces of homelessness in our city.


Improving the lives of NYC’s women and children for over 30 years.

Win transforms the lives of New York City homeless women and their children by providing a holistic solution of safe housing, critical services and ground-breaking programs they need to succeed on their own — so the women can re-gain their independence and their children can look forward to a brighter future.

Your donation can truly make a difference in the lives of homeless women and their children.

A Winning Partnership

Win is fortunate to receive generous funding from national and New York City corporations and foundations each year. Our families benefit from contributions toward our Income Building Program, Camp Win, Children’s Services, After School Programs, and more. Gifts provided for general operating support are most appreciated as Win will direct these funds to areas where there is an urgent need.

If your corporation or foundation would like to invite Win to apply for funding, please contact Cathy Jenkins, AVP of Corporate & Institutional Development ( to learn more about us or to request a proposal.
