New Destiny Housing congratulates Eric Adams on winning the New York City mayoral election. Our city is currently facing a number of formidable challenges, including a homelessness crisis that is only getting worse as eviction rates escalate. Given that families are the largest segment of the homeless population in the City, and over 40% of these families have suffered the additional trauma of domestic violence, solving homelessness and its systemic drivers must be a top priority.
We are excited by Mayor-elect Adams’ long resume of public service and commitment to social justice and know that he will tackle these challenges head-on. We look forward to working with the new administration to build a future that is more equitable and just for all New Yorkers.
