Photo Friday - A Look Back to the Welfare Hotels of New York

Homeless child sitting in New York Homeless Shelter

We recently came across a number of photos from Dr. Redlener's visits to the NYC welfare hotels  in the late 1980s.  As you can see from today's photo, homeless children were living in horrendous conditions with little chance of achieving a healthy lifestyle.  Unfortunately, many children today are still suffering like this young girl. With your support, we will continue to bring these children the health care they need and deserve.
