Our Partnership

Mobilizing Volunteers
Our volunteers provide practical, emotional, and social support for women facing an unplanned pregnancy, and preparing for childbirth.
Creativity From Our Volunteers
Over the years, volunteers have supported one another through snack bags for those serving during the work week, created gift baskets for clients, and started the baby shower committee to celebrate new parents.
Making Grants To Fund Programs
Our grant funds support Avail's decision making and pregnancy support programs, which Avail provides free of charge to all of their clients.

I’ve also been so blessed by the way my fellow volunteers have also become my dear friends and that the center really does represent a safe place to be who you are, whether you are the client or the volunteer.

Every year, our affiliate partners share stories of how they meet the specific needs of New Yorkers in need of hope.
In 2021, a milestone year that celebrated 25 years of His Toy Store, we distributed $155,000 to 29 affiliate partners so they could bring holiday joy to 15,000 New Yorkers in need.
As the challenges of the pandemic continue, we decided to focus on biblical hope and how our affiliate partners remain beacons of hope in our city.
