New York, NY -- February 8, 2017 -- On Monday, February 6, 2016, The Robin Hood Foundation pulled together its community of donors to support fellow New Yorkers. The Chauncey F. Lufkin III Foundation was privileged to offer a helping hand as Robin Hood volunteers for the annual Homeless Outreach Population Estimate (HOPE). HOPE is an annual, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development mandated survey of the number of individuals living in New York City’s public spaces.
On the night of the HOPE count, the NYC Department of Homeless Services (DHS) assembles thousands of volunteers who are sent out in teams to canvas our streets, subways and parks. HOPE is a point-in-time estimate of unsheltered individuals used to project service needs, allocate resources for the street homeless population, and educate and engage New Yorkers about this serious issue affecting us all.
Foundation Director, Cara Familet and her husband, Jeff Stevens, participated on behalf of The Chauncey F. Lufkin III Foundation. Also on their team were Beatriz De La Torre, Robin Hood’s Managing Director, Housing Advisory Board and fellow Robin Hood donors Russell Sternlicht and Yeshi Kassa.
