Hope for New York

Celebrating Our Fiscal Year 2020: Increasing Our Grants by 49%!

Our 2020 fiscal year ended on June 30, and despite the changes and challenges of a COVID-19 year, there are many milestones we want to celebrate!

FY20 Affiliate Grants

Every June, we distribute one set of direct grants to our affiliates to support their programs for the coming year. This year, we distributed over $2 million in direct grants to affiliates—a 10% increase from last year—to fund essential affiliate programs, staff and supplies for the coming year.
 

Virtual Volunteering: Sending Letters and Art to Isolated Residents

While New York City was "on pause," some of our volunteers have made connections by reaching out to isolated and immunocompromised residents at two HFNY affiliates. Volunteers of all ages got creative when writing letters and making art to send to Upper East Side Rehabilitation Nursing Center and Isaiah 58.

COVID-19 Stories of Hope: Empowering Our Immigrant Neighbors

Our melting pot country is founded on immigrants from England who emigrated to a new world in pursuit of a life of freedom. Through the years, as more immigrants from various countries have come to America, they have helped shape and form our cities and states, and become an essential part of our economy.

COVID-19 Stories of Hope: Seeing the Incarcerated

During the month of May, our Prayer Guide focuses on the currently and formerly incarcerated incarcerated, including adults and youth. As COVID-19 concerns has increased, the prison and juvenile detention systems in the U.S. have been faced with the overwhelming challenge of trying to isolate inmates and youth from each other, not just outside visitors.
