Thank you to Chair Hanif and to the esteemed members of the Immigration Committee for the opportunity to offer testimony.

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 10 percent of homeless families with children in New York City.
