Podcast - Fighting Poverty, Strengthening New York
In each episode we will dive into an issue affecting low-income New Yorkers in areas such as affordable housing, healthcare, and economic security, and we'll hear the story of how CSS staff and programs are striving to address these problems
On this episode of Fighting Poverty, Strengthening New York podcast we look into the eviction epidemic in NYC, introducing Daisy Young, who, after losing her job and watching her savings deplete, found an eviction notice on her apartment door.
We look at how CSS, along with other members of the emergency rent coalition, work to prevent homelessness through providing funds to halt evictions before the marshal shows up. And we hear from CSS housing analyst Oksana Mironova on how policy change is needed to keep low-income New Yorkers in the places they call home.
