Our volunteers started a worship service with residents at Upper East Side Rehabilitation and Nursing Center to encourage them spiritually through gospel-centered music and messages.
Creativity From Our Volunteers
With a range of backgrounds and cultures represented, our volunteers focus on making the services accessible to everyone through energetic music and variety in the service components.
Why We Love This Affiliate
Staff and family visitors often attend the services alongside the residents. They show a genuine interest in the welcoming services, and we hope this will lead to their discovery of Christ's joy.
"I do believe we make a meaningful, positive impact on the residents, and I also believe the volunteers themselves receive a meaningful, positive experience."
This year, we launched a few fitness and fundraising program called the Miles of Hope Challenge! Starting in March, our network was encouraged to run, bike, walk, etc., between affiliate sites across our city!
We recently shared some ways that His Toy Store Reimagined is bringing joy to families with toys and basic needs. Here are more ways that the holiday fund is bringing Christmas cheer to our affiliate communities!
Hope for New York volunteers are used to getting proximate in person with our affiliates, and the communities they serve. But when everything changed during COVID-19, our volunteers found new ways to serve!
