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

“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.”
