The Partnership’s CEO Talks about NYC’s Homelessness Crisis on WBAI

In a recent, wide-ranging conversation on WBAI’s CityWatch, The Partnership’s new CEO Áine Duggan and host Jeff Simmons discussed New York City’s homelessness crisis and how the Partnership is working to ensure every New Yorker has a home. Topics included:

  • The importance of seeing homelessness as a crisis of housing, rather than as an individual’s failure;
  • The link between frequent disruptions in students’ education and the increased likelihood that they’ll experience homelessness as adults; and
  • Understanding that our neighbors are the primary people who are served by shelters that are placed in our communities.
