There are currently more people homeless in New York than at any time since the Great Depression. Tonight alone, 63,000 people including nearly 22,000 children will sleep in NYC shelters. As the nation's oldest advocacy and direct service organization helping homeless individuals and families, the Coalition for the Homeless provides lifesaving support to thousands of homeless and at-risk individuals every single day. Over the past 40 years, the Coalition has developed and implemented humane, cost-effective strategies to end mass homelessness once and for all, and in those four decades has given more than one million homeless New Yorkers a way off the streets.
50% of each sale will be donated to the Coalition.
