About Network Talks
Network Talks is a series of conversations with the wider Hope for New York community about topics that New Yorkers care about.
This season, join us for an evening that will educate our network on the effects of the migrant crisis on homelessness in New York City, how it has impacted the work of our affiliates, and how our wider network can take steps to help.
Our hope for this event is to give attendees a better understanding on the complexity of the migrant crisis, in order to deepen their compassion and motivation for serving. We hope that this will be an opportunity for our network to consider and commit to praying, serving, and giving to neighbors in need.
