Even in the face of evictions, women working hard to care for sick and elderly parents in public housing aren’t backing down. Together with NMASS, they’ve launched the Family Caregivers Project to demand that the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) respect their caregiving work and give them successor rights to the family apartment where they have lived and cared for their sick and elderly parent or grandparent. Already they’ve reached out to friends and neighbors, published a “Caregivers Bulletin,” met in living rooms and kitchens to gather family caregivers together around these important demands.
With your support, we can win the fight for successor rights for family caregivers–women who give up everything to care for their loved ones only to find themselves heartlessly thrown out on the streets by NYCHA.
