New Perspectives on Homelessness in New York City

For our newest SAE CAREs podcast, Dr. Steve Estrine (President and CEO of SAE & Associates) has a conversation about homelessness in New York City with special guests John Sheehan and Bill Panepinto. All three speakers have years of experience working with homeless populations in New York City. 

During the podcast, they discuss the following:

  • the roots of homelessness in New York City;
  • the crack epidemic of the 1980s, and how it’s linked to homelessness;
  • today’s misconception of a homeless person;
  • the hurdles a homeless individual has to overcome to access services necessary for her/his survival;
  • the importance of engaging homeless individuals where they frequent for daily survival (more likely to be at a food pantry instead of a clinic); and
  • ways to address homelessness today.
