UHO is not the way to go
MYFOXNY.COM - Every day, generous New Yorkers drop money into the jugs at tables from the United Homeless Organization, also known as UHO.
The Shame unit has investigated UHO before. Now, Arnold Diaz is back with more questions about where the donations are going, questions the charity's founder, Steven Riley, wouldn't answer.
In fact, when Arnold confronted Riley in Union Square for some answers, things got ugly and physical.
The problem of homelessness in New York City is worse now than at any point since the Great Depression. If you would like to donate to organizations that provide direct services such as shelter, food, and clothing refer to these links and phone numbers:
>COALITION FOR THE HOMELESS
>THE BOWERY MISSION
>THE HOPE PROGRAM
