Since its inception, WCC has been concerned about housing and homelessness. WCC fights for safe, secure, and affordable housing for all New York City residents, because stable housing leads to stable living.

In 1988: WCC united 61 organizations to form the Coalition for Homeless Women and in following years published two seminal reports on the issue. 

Today: WCC’s Task Force on Public Housing conducts analysis on challenges faced by the New York City Housing Authority and advocates to improve conditions in public housing.
