Many people with disabilities face profound social exclusion. Do For One promotes neighborly caring by engaging volunteers (‘advocates’) in one-to-one relationships and supportive communities with disabled adults (‘partners’). Advocates are a bridge to the world of relationships. They walk alongside partners helping them discover their God-given purpose, create opportunities, build social networks, and prevent abuse. Do For One supports voluntary advocates through ongoing guidance, training, and community building.

When I think of my friendship with 'Jeffrey', words I think of are wonderful, laughable, and togetherness. We kinda stick together like glue.

Once a week, we’ll share brief stories from our affiliates who are still serving communities across the five boroughs. Our affiliates will provide updates on how COVID-19 has changed their programs and services, and how they're remaining hopeful about God continuing to work in our city.

Heavenly Father, thank you for the chance to pray with others for people with disabilities with those who believe that you are real and that you are a prayer answering God.

I was reminded at a recent HFNY Sunday of how opposite from society and culture Jesus is as One who lifted up and befriended those ignored by everyone else. And we, as followers of Jesus, are also invited into this truly life-giving mission.
