This year Governor Patterson has slated that Homelessness Prevention Programs be completely eliminated from the state budget, effective April 1, 2009. Each year, QCH's Homelessness Prevention Program prevents over 1,000 families from being evicted from their homes.
Homelessness Prevention Program services have been in place since 1992. Since that time, Queens Community House has prevented more than 15,000 evictions. By keeping families housed, the homelessness prevention program also preserves affordable housing stock in Queens, an increasingly scarce resource. Affordable housing is critical to helping public assistance recipients’ transition to self-sufficiency.
The Homelessness Prevention Program is critical to preventing homelessness in New York City and for many people is key to maintaining affordable housing and ultimately transitioning to financial independence.
We cannot afford to cut this cost effective program at this critical time for so many vulnerable New Yorkers. Call your representatives in Albany to urge them to reconsider cutting this program.
