Combatting Homelessness

“New York City continues to reach record numbers of people in our shelter system, the majority of them families and children, and the mayor must  implement effective policies to change this. Our city needs more affordable housing and more supportive resources to keep people in their homes.” - Council Member Elizabeth Crowley

In the City Council, Council Member Elizabeth Crowley has been the strongest voice against the mayor and his administration, fighting shortsighted and irresponsible policies affecting our city’s growing homeless population.
  
Housing families in hotels is not only wrong it is illegal and that is why Council Member Crowley sued the DeBlasio administration: 
  
  • Filed a lawsuit against the city

  • Introduced legislation that would create an Inspector General office for the Department of Homeless Services, dedicated to rooting out fraud, waste and corruption in the agency
