JFK talks homelessness with NYC activist Wendy O'Shields about her in homelessness with the City departments of NYC. I work as a Housing Advocate for the Homeless and Welfare Reform in the City of New York. My advocacy has improved the City of New York’s Department of Homeless Services treatment of shelter residents. My advocacy for Welfare Reform has lessened barriers for no to low-income people’s ability to access vital public benefits at the City of New York’s Human Resource Administration. My work is very much needed to insure that many New Yorkers rights are protected while Homeless or while in need of public benefits. I am working to increase affordable housing for no to middle-income housing stock in the City of New York! Building or renovating apartments is a beginning to house the growing Homeless population in New York City. I believe that developing mixed-use rental properties for New Yorkers with no to middle-income and having a portion of apartments for ownership an option to increase affordable housing in NYC. The CityFHEPS voucher, New York State and HUD housing programs, and private funding can be accessed as a means for funding and tenant rent. Please see our Press Release on the NYC Public Advocate's Department of Homeless Services Shelter Residents Transfers report on the steps at City Hall. --- Send in a voice message: Support this podcast:
