Urban Resource Institute’s(URI) programs are about supporting individuals and families and protecting the whole family from abuse—and we knew a solution was needed. That’s why we’ve launched URIPALS—People and Animals Living Safely, a pilot program at URI’s Urban Women’s Safe Haven shelter, in partnership with the Mayor’s Alliance for New York City’s Animals. URIPALS, the first co-sheltering program in NYC and one of few offered nationwide, equips the shelter to house families and pets together, preserving the welfare and safety of all.
