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.
 

The Power of Hope for New York's Network

As the COVID-19 situation became more and more “real,” Hope for New York continued to refer to our core mission and ask the hard question, “How is God calling us to respond?” For HFNY and our affiliates, the collective response is that we must continually innovate our strategies in order to meet those who are most vulnerable in our City. Across the HFNY affiliate network, organizations are re-imagining how we can most effectively meet the growing need for physical, emotional and spiritual care during this season.

Celebrating Our First Round of Relief Fund Grants

Two weeks ago, in order to mobilize resources for the financial needs of our affiliates, HFNY opened up the HFNY Relief Fund. With the incredible generosity of the HFNY community (thank you!), we provided $375,000 in the first round of grant funding to 27 affiliates, and this will support the relief efforts of their network.

3 Big Ways Hope for New York Is Supporting Our Affiliates

In a typical season in NYC, the network of 60+ HFNY affiliates are a lifeline for over one million New Yorkers. Providing food, housing, addiction recovery care, ESL and literacy programs, free legal services and much more, these organizations help provide critical services for those who are hungry, homeless or vulnerable.  With the COVID-19 season, the need for HFNY affiliate programs has intensified and grown.
