Tanya Kessler Speaks on Three-Quarter Housing

Former Skadden fellow Tanya Kessler ('09) of MFY Legal Services, Inc. was featured in a video accompanying a front-page New York Times article about "three-quarter housing," "an unregulated housing system ... that preys on the vulnerable homeless" ("Profiting From the Desperate," May 30). The houses purport to provide support services and counseling to people who have been incarcerated or are in drug treatment programs. "Three quarter houses are an underground housing system," Tanya said. "The main characteristics are really that they're not licensed, that they're claiming to provide a service and that they're very overcrowded."
