Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg announced the appointment of Seth Diamond to head the City’s Department of Homeless Services. As Commissioner, Mr. Diamond will continue to direct the City’s efforts to prevent homelessness, and provide short-term emergency shelter and re-housing support for New Yorkers who need it. He will also look to further enhance support systems for shelter clients who are working, and assist them in making the transition out of shelter to self sufficiency. Commissioner Diamond succeeds Robert Hess who told the Mayor last month he would be accepting a position with The Doe Fund. The Mayor made the announcement in the Blue Room of City Hall, where he was joined by Deputy Mayor for Health and Human Services Linda I. Gibbs, and outgoing Homeless Services Commissioner Hess.
