Our First! - Annual Report 2013
Nazareth Housing is pleased to release the inaugural Success Stories - Annual Report 2013.View & Download the Report
The lead article in the New York Times on December 9, 2013, complete with photographs, features a young woman and her family living in a city run homeless shelter. The article does not distinguish between the variety of shelter settings offered by non-profits, for-profits and city managed sites. The conditions at Auburn have been terrible for some time, despite the fact that City shelters are far more generously funded than non-profit providers, while the conditions and lack of staff engagement and impact are astounding.
The shelter, housing, programs and engagement offered by Nazareth Housing and Thorpe Family Residence are in no way reflected in the article. Over the coming weeks Nazareth Housing will be issuing our own picture of how a shelter can and should provide support and empowerment for families that struggle.
