Inspired, strengthened and sustained by faith, the Interfaith Assembly on Homelessness and Housing is committed to confronting the unconscionable and unacceptable reality of homelessness in New York City. Recognizing society's shared responsibility and working as partners with those who have experienced homelessness, the Assembly will mobilize communities of faith to empower all people, to advocate public policies to eliminate homelessness, and strive for the transformation of society.


Letter from the Executive Director sticky icon

The Interfaith Assembly addresses the crisis of homelessness and the shortage of affordable housing in two ways. Through our empowerment programs we help those who have been homeless to recover from the trauma associated with their homelessness, and with our advocacy partners we work to “Build the Blessed City Together” and promote public policies that will – produce affordable housing; prevent homelessness, provide important services; and promote income and employment.On both these fronts, there has been much recent activity.

Cry out full-throated and unsparingly, lift up your voice like a trumpet blast....

Join the Interfaith Assembly and the 4 NY/NY Housing on Wednesdays at 9 am as we call on Governor Cuomo to sign the MOU to release 1.9 billion dollars for supportive and affordable housing. View a video of the faith community, homeless men and women and our allies at recent rallies.
