DESCRIPTION: This report details alarming homelessness statistics in New York City, citing the city's lack of effort to help homeless children and adults move from shelters to permanent housing as a main source of the problem. The report urges Mayor Bloomberg to utilize successful federal housing programs that are already in place, and implement new rental assistance programs modeled after these existing programs.
