HFH provides NYC families experiencing homelessness with more than just a place to sleep. On any given day nearly 610 families with children ages 0 to 18 reside in safe, clean, shelters–our family residences–with a host of services designed to make the most of their time in shelter. Many HFH programs are also available to neighbors in the communities near our family residences.
Our five family residences are located in the Bronx, Manhattan, and Queens. 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.
