HATAS Mission and History
HATAS's mission is to end homelessness within the New York State Capital Region. HATAS Programs include 87 units of permanent housing for mentally ill households, 24/7 emergency homeless housing services, mental health, homelessness prevention and employment training. Formed in 1924, HATAS is located in Albany, New York at 138 Central Avenue Albany, New York 12206. You can reach HATAS by calling (518) 463-2124 or by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Last year HATAS assisted over 11,000 homeless, at-risk and low-income households with housing, employment and mental health services and since 1983 HATAS has assisted over 155,000 Capital Region Households.
HATAS employs a holistic wrap-around approach in caring for our neighbors in need and we serve all persons with the dignity and respect that they deserve. HATAS works in concert with our partners in service to eliminate duplication and to increase the quality of services available within the Capital Region.

About Homeless and Travelers Aid Society
Clean winter coats
Hats and Socks
Diapers (all sizes), Diaper Wipes, and Diaper Cream
Clean unused pajamas for children aged birth to ten
Why do we ask for toys made of wood? Our children have very little and toys made of wood are miniature works of arts that are beautiful to look at and easy to clean.
HATAS collects toys and pajamas all year long and especially at the holidays.
Last year HATAS distributed over 300 sets of pajamas, 175 wood toys and 6,050 diapers to homeless and hungry families.
As a 501c3 not-for-profit, we rely on the generous support of our community to fulfill our mission. Many people provide support through contributions of time, money, and items from our wish list.
