New York City Has Reduced Veteran Homelessness by 90% In Just Five Years

Over the past five years, policies set forth by Mayor Bloomberg and Mayor de Blasio have reduced veteran homelessness by 90% in New York City, with 1,600 vets off the street in the past year alone.

On Veterans day we honor heroes like Andre Sylvain, a former Combat Engineer in the United States Army and one of the many veterans who New York City has helped find a home. In the last five years, NYC has reduced veteran homelessness by over 90% and, since last Veterans day, has placed over 1,600 homeless veterans into permanent affordable housing.
