Do For One's mission is to bring dignity and hope to people with disabilities ("partners") through the power of relationships. Do For One brings people who are marginalized into a place of belonging through strategic partnerships with churches and surrounding communities. By selectively matching one person with disabilities in need of guidance, companionship, or advocacy with a volunteer ("advocate"), Do For One forms life-changing relationships sustained through education and community support.

Why We Love This Affiliate
Do For One allows HFNY volunteers to build genuine relationships with people who have disabilities through fun community gatherings such as movie and game nights and karaoke nights.

People are welcomed to be their own quirky selves and that fosters a celebration of what it is to be human, in need of love and each other, regardless of seeming differences.

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.
