Tuesday night I attended the WIN Annual Dinner Gala. WIN is the largest provider of shelter and supportive housing for homeless families in New York City, and I am proud that my friends Clover, Nanda and Donna are all on the WIN board.
Last year, WIN served nearly 10,000 homeless people, including more than 6000 children, and helped nearly 800 families transition out of shelter and into homes of their own. WIN’s dynamic President and CEO, Chris Quinn, reminded us that the majority of those children are under age 5, and over half of WIN’s clients are employed. It was an inspiring evening.
