Statement from Kathryn Wylde, President & CEO of the Partnership for New York City, on Mayor de Blasio’s Supportive Housing Initiative

November 18, 2015

“The business community supports the Mayor’s effort to increase the supply of supportive housing as a long term solution to homelessness, as well as the commitment that is being made to expanded mental health services that address the needs of a significant portion of the single homeless population. This initiative is an appropriate and thoughtful response to the 50% increase in the number of homeless people living in city shelters over the past five years.”
