Hope Is Where the Heart Is

Black and Latinx New Yorkers are disproportionately affected by homelessness. Approximately 57 percent of heads of households in shelters are Black, 32 percent are Latinx. Studies also show that the large majority of street homeless New Yorkers are people living with mental illness or other severe health problems.
