FIRST ON amNY | Mayor Adams expected to report increased homeless shelter placements

Mayor Eric Adams is expected to report Wednesday that his administration has made progress in getting more homeless New Yorkers off the streets and into housing, amNewYork Metro has learned.

According to latest statistics obtained from City Hall, so far in 2023, 1,000 people have been placed into permanent housing from Safe Havens and stabilization beds — double the number reported at the same point last year. Furthermore, 6,000 vulnerable New Yorkers have been checked into shelters since the Subway Safety plan was launched in February 2022, an initiative that sees outreach teams and police officers patrol the transit system.
