Promote Re-Entry for Public Housing Residents

The New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) routinely starts eviction proceedings when a household member is arrested, before conviction for any crime.  Some families are allowed to avoid eviction only on the condition that they permanently exclude the family member who was arrested, meaning that even teenagers can be permanently banished from their homes.  Youth Represent is advocating for policies that promote safety and stability for all NYCHA residents, including those charged with crimes.
