LICH Thanks Senator Schumer for $900,000 in CDS funding for the Amityville Veterans Community Resource Center

The Long Island Coalition for the Homeless is excited to announce that it has been awarded $900,000 in capital funding for the Veterans Community Resource Center in Amityville! This funding was made possible by Majority Leader Charles Schumer, through an allocation as part of the Congressionally Directed Spending budget.

“One homeless vet is one too many, and I am proud I fought hard and secured $900,000 for the Long Island Coalition for the Homeless (LICH) to improve their Veterans Community Resource Center. The funding will make much-needed infrastructure improvements to the Amityville facility so that LICH their many partner organizations can continue helping our veterans, seniors, and so many others each day in a safe, secure environment,” said Senator Chuck Schumer.

THE APPROACH

Our approach is somewhat simple: we meet people where they are at, and support them until they are permanently housed- whatever that takes, and however long that takes. We do this using techniques and approaches that are grounded in evidence to be most effective, in a person-centered way.
