๐ŸŽ™๏ธ๐Ÿ  The struggle for affordable housing in NYC is real, and it's impacting the lives of 80% of households in povertyโ€”spending 70% of their income on rent leaves little for essentials like food, healthcare, and transportation. The housing crisis is real, and it's hurting New Yorkers.

๐ŸŽง Join us on today's episode of "This Robin Hood Moment" as we dive into the complexities of this crisis and learn how Robin Hood, NYC's largest poverty-fighting philanthropy, is taking action. ๐ŸŒŸ Featuring our special guest: Chloe Sarnoff, a policy advisor at Robin Hood and in-house housing expert (pardon the pun).

๐Ÿ‘‚ Tune in to hear how we're tackling this issue head-on, working towards a more affordable and equitable NYC. Let's together! ๐Ÿ’š

10/17/2023

๐Ÿ˜๏ธ๐Ÿค Providing affordable housing is a vital challenge for NYC, and one major hurdle is efficiently placing housing voucher holders. ๐Ÿ“‰ In the U.S., only 25% of eligible households receive rental assistance, dropping to 21% in NYC. Yet, the benefits are crystal clearโ€”a NYC Mayor's report shows that voucher holders have a significantly lower return rate to shelter.

๐ŸŒŸ Enter Anthos|Home, with an innovative mission to tackle administrative inefficiencies in housing placement. Thanks to Robin Hood funding, they're streamlining processes to help those in need access affordable housing faster and more effectively.

๐Ÿค” Did you know Manhattan is the most expensive place to live in the United States? 122% higher than the average across the country!

Robin Hood recognizes that one of the critical issues of our time is the need for safe, affordable housing for New Yorkers.

That's why, in 2022, we invested $9.7 million in programs that provide legal assistance, connections to rental assistance, and provide pathways from shelter to permanent, affordable housing.
