To Our Affiliates

Thank you for your determination to care for some of the most vulnerable and marginalized populations in our City. Our team at HFNY is committed to sustaining, supporting and praying for your vital work during the COVID-19 season. Throughout this time, we are activating all aspects of the HFNY model (funding, network and capacity building, and volunteer engagement) to help support and partner with you in this season.

Also, see Hope for New York's COVID-19 Resource Guide for affiliate prayers and other updates.

If you are currently engaging volunteers (virtually or in person), please be proactive in connecting with your HFNY Program Manager to update us on any new or modified volunteer opportunities so we can recruit volunteers.

Please note: We are recruiting volunteers above and beyond our normal HFNY efforts. In most cases, we’re directing volunteers to your website for immediate connection.
