Testimony of Win (formerly Women in Need, Inc.) for the New York City Council Committee of the Whole on the City’s Response and Delivery of Services to Migrants

Thank you, Speaker Adams, Deputy Speaker Ayala, and the Committee of the Whole, for offering this important chance to testify. My name is Chris Quinn, and I am the President and CEO of Win. Win is New York City’s largest provider of shelter and services to families with children experiencing homelessness. We operate 14 shelters and nearly 600 supportive housing units across the five boroughs. Currently, more than 6,200 people call Win “home” every night, including 3,490 children — in total, we house over 14 percent of homeless families with children in New York City.
