Give to the Live Life Forward Campaign

December 1, 2022

Dear Friend,

Most of the persons we serve have survived family violence or rejection—in addition to experiencing the trauma of homelessness.

Will you make a Live Life Forward gift today?

You empower homeless New Yorkers to address trauma, build skills and be active participants in their own care, goal setting and achievement.

Your support is transformational for residents like Quadriyah.

“I went to every session—mommy and baby classes, business classes, CPR training, parenting, resume writing, job fairs… I didn’t want to miss anything.”

— Quadriyah, single mother and former family shelter resident. She and her son have moved to permanent housing.

Housing is just the start of the comprehensive care Homeward NYC provides: counseling, case management, connections to community resources, group activities, and life skills.

Skills-building and empowerment have been key since our founding. These programs inspired many to volunteer or make a gift. Perhaps they inspired you.

We are excited to share that starting in 2023, we’ll offer aftercare services, a longtime goal. In the critical year after move-out, we’ll contact residents to assess their needs and connect them to resources—so they remain stably and safely housed.

We hope you’ll include the individuals and families of Homeward NYC in your year-end giving. Your generosity empowers homeless youth, families and seniors to live life forward.

Thank you for making this life-changing housing and wraparound care possible!

Jeannette K. Ruffins
Chief Executive Officer

P.S. We look forward to updating you on our aftercare program… and the grand opening of Homeward Central Harlem in fall 2023!

P.P.S. Please make your gift before Dec. 31. To give by mail, send to Homeward NYC, 475 Riverside Dr, Ste 740, New York, NY 10115.
