Mr. Truluck's story is one that is all too familiar, but with the support of our programs in NYC, he was able to break the cycle of addiction and poverty to find a place he can call home.

Across the nation, we are committed to building , and that starts with making sure every person has access to quality food and affordable housing. Our teams at Volunteers of America-Greater New York and in 30 other states are championing this work by providing holistic services that address the urgent needs of our communities.

Read Mr. Truluck's story in The New York Times using the link below.

Tired of living in desperate conditions, 52-year-old Mr. Truluck finally found a place of his own after years of street homelessness in New York City.

Mr. Truluck recently shared his story—and his new home at VOA-GNY’s Commonwealth Residence in the Bronx, provided through our Street to Home pilot program—with The New York Times.

“This new small area is priceless to me," he said. "When I got here, this was like peace of mind so I could move forward."

The U.S. Census Bureau reports close to 40 million Americans currently living in poverty, including more than half a million unhoused people nationwide.

During National Poverty in America Awareness Month, VOA remains committed to building strong, vibrant communities in the 30+ states we serve. Last year, we helped 1.5 million people impacted by poverty with affordable housing, essential services, vital programs, and counseling services – and we’re ready to do it again in 2024.
