Mission: 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.

On any given day, 720 families with 780 children reside in our six family residences in the Bronx, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island.


HFH Summer Camps: Just one hour outside New York City, Camp Wakonda offers adventure and learning for children ages 7 through 11. Since 1989, HFH Summer Camps have welcomed nearly 19,000 campers. By learning to swim, garden, and boat, they learn to respect nature and each other. Every day at camp, the campers form long-lasting friendships and memories.
