Over 250 volunteers serve with Living Waters each year, serving Saturday community breakfasts, teaching ESL and getting to know neighborhood kids through sports and crafts.
Creativity From Our Volunteers
A team of committed HFNY Volunteers started providing ESL tutoring over five years ago to meet a need of many of the families attending the Saturday morning breakfasts.
Making Grants To Fund Programs
Our grant funds support Living Waters' community meals as well as youth programming, including the after-school programs and weekend sports and crafts.
When times are rough, I come over here and have a really good breakfast, and it holds me out all day. It's like having a family, too. You have a place you can come, and everybody knows your name. They remember your name here!
Six in 10 New Yorkers are either immigrants or children of immigrants, and many face challenges as they encounter a new language and culture. Join us in prayer for the holistic flourishing of all immigrants in our city.
The writer of Hebrews says, “Let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works.” Certainly, serving the poor and marginalized together is one way to encourage one another toward good works and build one another up in Christ.
Here at Hope for New York, we are passionate about pairing volunteers with nonprofits throughout the city. Although there are countless volunteer activities to participate in, we wanted to highlight six unusual opportunities that might surprise you!
