Mission Statement

The New York City Department of Homeless Services (DHS)' Mission, in partnership with public and private agencies, is to provide temporary emergency shelter for eligible people in a safe, supportive environment. In an atmosphere of cooperation and respect, we deliver services through a continuum of care, where the client assumes the responsibility for achieving the goal of independent living.

Description

Established in 1993 and made an independent Mayoral agency in 1999, DHS today provides the most comprehensive services in the world to homeless individuals and families. These services â  ranging from outreach services to those on the streets; job training, substance abuse and mental health services; and housing search support â  exist to help individuals and families overcome their experiences with homelessness.
