The Clinton Family Inn is one of four American Family Inns in New York City administered by Homes for the Homeless (HFH). Homes for the Homeless is the largest single provider of transitional housing in New York City, serving over 540 homeless families daily in its four American Family Inns. The American Family Inns are more than just shelters; they are residential education and employment training centers designed to strengthen and preserve families. Homes for the Homeless is the largest single operator of such facilities in the nation.

A private, non-profit organization, Homes for the Homeless was founded in 1986 through the collaboration of the City of New York, the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine, and Leonard N. Stern, Chairman of the Hartz Group. Recognizing that homelessness is more than merely a housing issue, HFH developed the American Family Inn model, a comprehensive and carefully integrated network of on-site programs designed to address the interrelated causes of homelessness. Strengthening children, parents, and families through education is at heart of all programming at Homes for the Homeless.

In collaboration with HFH, Career Education Center provides educational services leading to a New York State High School Equivalency Diploma to women who reside at the Clinton Family Inn, ages 17 and above. Our students also include non-residents, ages 17-20. The GED program accepts students who score at the pre-GED and GED levels on the TABE (Test for Adult Basic Education). In addition to instruction in the five content areas of the GED, interested students are provided with assistance with the college-application process and with job readiness skills.
