According to the NYC Coalition for the Homeless, an unprecedented monthly total of 86,510 people slept in the main NYC Shelter System including 20,000 families and almost 30,000 children.
The Bridge Fund of New York is making an urgent call to you—our dedicated Bridge Fund supporter to prevent more children and families from becoming homeless this coming holiday season.
Our team is working diligently with our families to ensure they have money to pay back rental arrears, keep their utilities on with the approaching winter, and put food on their table.
How You Can Help
- A donation of just $2,600 can prevent a family of three from entering the public shelter system at an annual cost to taxpayers of $69,000.
- A donation of $200 can feed a family of three for a week.
- A donation of $350 can keep the heat, hot water and lights on in an apartment for two months.
- Any donations can make an enormous difference in the lives of working poor households in both NYC and Westchester.
