Make a difference in the lives of the homeless in NYC!
There are many ways that YOU can make a positive difference in the lives of New York City homeless individuals.
Through the Eyes of the Homeless is a Heart Gallery NYC and NYC Department of Homeless Services project aimed at empowering the homeless and raising awareness of their needs.
NYC DHS recognizes that there are a variety of reasons why families and individuals may become homeless, including instances of domestic violence, eviction or unsafe building conditions.
Established in 2004, DHS' Homebase program remains at the center of prevention efforts, as it assists families and individuals to overcome immediate housing issues that could result in becoming homeless, while also helping them develop plans for long-term stability.
If you or someone you know is experiencing a housing crisis, please call 311.
To support the Through the Eyes of the Homeless project and/or to learn more about how you can help, please consider joining the cause by volunteering or offering in-kind or financial support.
