new york city relief

We volunteer with New York City relief on a regular basis, joining their teams on the street of Newark, New Jersey. 
 
New York City Relief is BOOTS ON THE GROUND in the poverty stricken area of New York City and New Jersey. They lead an army of volunteers, 7,000 strong. They take poverty, addiction and despair head on. They go to the front lines of critical need, bringing relief and compassion to those falling through the cracks of society. The help they bring is many times the difference between life and death for these most vulnerable people groups. They don’t just give a hand out, they also give a hand up by connecting the suffering to vital resources that can turn their lives around. Shelter, medical care, addiction recovery and job training are lifelines to many who are sinking. Their strategy is compassion and our mission is life transformation.
