COVID-19 Resource Guide

COVID19 resources page header

Since the end of March, 100% of Hope for New York's affiliate programs have been modified or suspended due to COVID-19.


A Letter From Our CEO, Elise Chong

 

Dear Friends,

In this season, how do we love and serve our neighbors well when we are asked to socially distance ourselves? Many of you are asking how you can help during this time, so our team has put together this resource guide as a way to share how the Hope for New York network can support each other, while still remaining mindful about taking precautions. We hope you will find this guide helpful.

Urgent Needs newsletter - Starting Monday, July 6, our weekly newsletter will return to its standard Urgent Needs edition to share immediate opportunities.

FOR OUR CHURCH PARTNERS

 

Pray

Affiliate Prayer Requests - Our affiliates are sharing ways you can pray for them, so we ask that you also ask that congregations keep our affiliates in mind. Even as physical gathering is discouraged, we hope you will still connect with family and friends virtually to pray for protection over our city and for its most vulnerable populations. We ask that congregations join us in prayer by following the guide.

Hope for New York Prayer Guide - Feel free to use our evergreen prayer guide to pray for vulnerable and marginalized communities every month.
