HOPE FOR NEW YORK
World Vision
The Bronx

World Vision an international Christian humanitarian organization with a focus on children in need.

Mission: World Vision is dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice.

Vision: As a faith based non-profit organization, World Vision’s Christian perspective drives their vision for every child to experience life in all its fullness. Their prayer is for every heart to have the will to make it so.

OUR PARTNERSHIP
Our volunteers work in the World Vision storehouse sorting and packaging compassionate care products for community partners.
Our grant funds support the Teacher Resource Center, where teachers at Title IX schools can shop for supplies for their classrooms free of cost. These supplies have been tracked to better school attendance and participation for students.
After Superstorm Sandy, World Vision took a mobile Teacher Resource Center to schools heavily damaged by the storm. In a refurbished school bus, they provided free, new replacement school supplies to over 2,500 and 150 teachers!

Communities in Need
“At World Vision Greater New York, and our hope for the children of New York is that they would be protected, educated, healthy, and understand Jesus’s love for them. At our recent Back to School Event in the Bronx, we encountered many families without the resources to purchase the school supplies for their children. Each child who came was given a backpack filled with all the supplies they would need for the start of their year. One of the mothers, Eva, had a difficult year-- experiencing health problems, death in her family, and economic uncertainty. Eva told us that, before our event, she didn’t know how she was going to get school supplies for her daughter. But, because of World Vision, she was able to meet her daughter’s needs and start the school year off right. We’re grateful to be there for moms like Eva.”
