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.

This year's Spring Benefit was the first one we've held in person since 2019! We loved celebrating community with everyone together in one room.
Nine affiliates gave special shout outs to Hope for New York volunteers for supporting their work and their communities during the pandemic's earliest days.
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.
