Check Out Our Expanded Document Library

Check out our expanded Advocacy Document Library, to which we have added more information about your rights as a New York City shelter resident and your rights regarding placements in permanent housing.

We’ve added or updated three new sections:

Know Your Rights–Single Adult and Family Shelter Rights, which includes links to documents explaining your rights in shelter and in applying for shelter in easy-to-understand language.

Advantage NY, which includes a detailed explanation of the new Advantage program and important information households should know before signing a lease.

Illegal Boarding Houses–Know Your Rights, which includes links to new rules the City has put in place regarding referrals to illegal housing.
