Hope For New York Presents: Housing and Inequality In NYC


In the face of increasing rents and decreasing access to affordable housing, who are our most vulnerable neighbors when it comes to housing accessibility? What are the opportunities for Gospel practice in the places we occupy and its implications for our neighbors?

In this workshop, we will learn about the landscape of housing in our city today and hear from practitioners working with vulnerable New Yorkers to find and remain in their homes.

RSVP here.

Matthew Dunbar - Vice President, External Affairs, Habitat for Humanity NYC

Josiah Haken - Vice President, Outreach Operations, New York City Relief
