City & State named Áine Duggan, President and CEO of The Partnership To End Homelessness, among its 2022 Above & Beyond: Innovators honorees this summer.
The awards are presented to those involved in transformative government projects, individual change agents and industry partners that are reimagining the public sector – all who improve the lives of New Yorkers across the state. You can read the article here.
City & State called The Partnership’s work “increasingly critical” amid the pandemic, noting, “what makes its model effective is that it aims to provide full rental assistance for the families seeking assistance, rather than leaving them in the position of cobbling together assistance from multiple organizations.”
It is also critical to make sure that New Yorkers understand that homelessness disproportionately affects women and children of color. As Duggan told City & State, “To have a conversation about homelessness is to have a conversation about gender primarily… but to go even further, it is to have a conversation about gender and race, inequity and discrimination.”
