Win’s 2022 City Legislative Priorities

Win, formerly Women in Need, has been serving families with children experiencing homelessness in New York City for nearly 40 years. We understand the causes of homelessness and the supports that families need in order to break the cycle of homelessness. Unfortunately, we have seen leaders base decisions on managing the homelessness crisis instead of ending it. New York City has a fresh opportunity to focus on what matters: investing in the supports and interventions that help families build the financial and psychosocial resilience they need to achieve housing stability. A reduction in homelessness will follow. Below are six key steps that the City Council can take to put the tools to a brighter future in the hands of vulnerable families.
