NYLAG Submits Testimony on Food Access and Quality within DHS Shelters

The Shelter Advocacy Initiative at NYLAG provides legal services and advocacy to low-income people in the shelter system. We work to ensure that every New Yorker has a safe place to sleep by offering legal advice and representation throughout each step of the shelter application process. 

Additionally, we assist and advocate for clients who are already in shelter as they navigate the transfer process, seek adequate facility conditions and resources for their needs, and we offer representation at fair hearings. Based on our experience working with individual adults and homeless families in the shelter system, the Shelter Advocacy Initiative at NYLAG appreciates the opportunity to offer the following comments on food access and quality within DHS shelters.
