End the Cycle of Youth Homelessness - NYS Ride 8/3/15 0 8/10/15

Coalition for Homeless Youth's Cycle to End Youth Homelessness!

End the Cycle of Youth Homelessness Ride

 

The Coalition for Homeless Youth and other advocacy groups have been successful in restoring $2.18 million dollars to New York State funding to programs housing homeless youth that has been lost over the past 7 years. To bring attention to the needs of Homeless Youth and to help the Coalition for Homeless Youth to continue our advocacy work, the CHY is supporting a bicycle ride across NY from Lake Erie to Manhattan.

This is the first year of our “End the CYCLE of youth homelessness” campaign. This year it will be a solo ride by Roger Williams, a member of the CHY board, and the Division Director of Shelter Services and Supportive Housing at Children’s Village in Dobbs Ferry NY. We would like him to stop at our member agencies and County Youth Bureaus along the route (roughly along NY route 17 to Beacon NY and route 9 to Manhattan) ending at Covenant House on the West Side).
