HFH operates shelters for families experiencing homelessness in NYC. Our family residences are more than just a place to sleep. Families can make the most of their stay through accessing an array of onsite programs. Many of these programs are also available to people living in the local community. Our goal is to have a positive impact so families can thrive long after they leave our shelters.

Family Residences

Our six family residences are located in the Bronx, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island. We offer free, on-site childcare, early education programming, afterschool-recreation, wrap-around social services, and employment training, as well as a variety of referrals and access to citywide resources depending on the site.


HFH offers a variety of programs for children, youth, and their parents focused on education, employment, and social services, including a new state-of-the art Culinary Education & Employment Center.
