The career center at The Bowery Mission has been extremely helpful in preparing me for employment and also directly connecting me to my current job. I had built my first resume, and was blessed to sit through mock interview workshops.

Among women in New York City, single mothers are the most economically insecure. Additionally, women disproportionately face domestic violence. Because we serve a God who is strong and never forsakes, we lift up in prayer women across our city who are in vulnerable situations.

Hope for New York volunteers are constantly thinking through how they can best serve their neighbors in need as a response to the grace shown by Jesus. Let these stories inspire you to pray through how God might want to use you to bring greater flourishing to this city.
