New York, NY— Win, the largest provider of family shelter and supportive housing in the nation, will be hosting its 28th annual gala to help the thousands of mothers, children and families who call Win home or benefit from Win services. The event will be attended by notable business leaders, advocates, and elected officials.

The gala, themed ‘Together We Win,’ comes after almost two years of Win leading the city’s humanitarian efforts to address the asylum-seekers crisis and working to improve New York’s homeless services. Currently, New York City is facing the worst homelessness crisis since the Great Depression. Funds raised at the event will support Win’s efforts to provide shelter and services to homeless families — including those seeking asylum — so they can find stable, affordable housing and break the cycle of homelessness.

The event will honor Scott Rechler, CEO of RXR Realty, a leader in New York’s real estate industry, has been supporting underserved communities and addressing systemic poverty through his work and philanthropic investments; as well as the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, one of Win’s first philanthropic partners supporting Win’s Income Building Program. Win’s career development program has helped more than 3,000 Win clients increase their hourly income by more than $5/hour while gaining the tools to secure better employment opportunities and strong career prospects.

About Win:

Win is the largest provider of family shelter and supportive housing in the nation, operating 14 family shelters and 9 supportive housing facilities across New York City as well as more than 100 supportive housing units in the Bronx and Brooklyn. In the past year, Win served nearly 9,200 homeless people – including more than 5,000 children – helping them to break the cycle of homelessness. Housing instability can stymie a child’s healthy socio-emotional and cognitive development, with implications for mental health, behavioral health, and success in life. Through Camp Win, an immersive summer-long program, and other programming, Win works to provide a safe, engaging environment for children in shelter.
