New York City stands on the brink of a new era as we move into pandemic recovery. With a new focus on racial and other forms of social justice, a new mayoral administration and an upcoming gubernatorial race with potentially significant policy implications, homelessness and its relation to public health and safety have entered the conversation in profound new ways. The current moment provides a unique opportunity to consider what homeless outreach and supportive housing should look like and how partnerships between philanthropy, private enterprise and social service organizations can play a role in revitalizing the City we all love. 

Join us for a panel discussion, offering an update on the current state of the sector and a vision for the future for homeless outreach, service connection, and housing stability. Taking Midtown Manhattan as a microcosm of larger dynamics, how can current service delivery models be scaled up or improved to help people escape the trauma of homelessness forever?

What will you learn?

  • Contextual understanding of what we are all witnessing in New York City right now in the housing and homeless service domains
  • What are the gaps in current homeless services and opportunities for innovative service delivery models
  • How to operationalize housing as the answer to homelessness
  • The role(s) that philanthropy can play in advocacy, communications, and fostering partnerships

Who should attend?
