New York, NY – The announcement that Mayor de Blasio’s administration will increase funding for homeless prevention services is welcome and will help keep many New Yorkers in their homes where they belong.
Too many pundits and political enemies have blamed the mayor for the city’s homeless problem, as if it emerged out of nowhere after he was elected. The fact is, his administration has been diligently working on humane approaches to this problem, and today’s announcement is further evidence of his commitment to ease the suffering of the homeless in our communities.
