Mission Statement

The Homelessness Outreach and Prevention Project at the Urban Justice Center was founded in 1984 to reach the most marginalized members of New York City's communities by dispatching lawyers and advocates directly to the places where people without stable housing go to meet their basic needs. Currently, we run legal clinics every day of the week at emergency food and other service providers in Manhattan, the Bronx, and Brooklyn, along with access to education and community-based training initiatives.

Description

The Urban Justice Center, HOPP Research Initiative is currently working on the Food Card Access Project. The project involves a city-wide partnership of organizations working together to improve food security for New Yorkers. It responds to an increasing need for food aid by working to promote food stamp utilization in New York City, thus improving economic self-sufficiency of low income individuals, families and communities, as well as contributing money to the economy.
