Give to the Live Life Forward Campaign

December 1, 2023

Dear Friend,

We are home for homeless young mothers with toddlers, older adults, and LGBTQIA young adults. young woman with baby, three smiling young adults, older man wearing hat

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

Will you include the individuals and families of Homeward NYC in your end of year giving?

Your gift will sustain life-changing programs at our Upper West Side intergenerational residence for young families and seniors… and at our LGBTQIA supportive housing sites.

This year, we’re excited to share what we’ve accomplished together:

  • Launching a new program to provide aftercare services in the critical year after move out from our family shelter or supportive housing
  • Opening Homeward Central Harlem, our third LGBTQIA supportive housing residence

Lo, a 23-year-old teacher and artist, moved to Homeward Central Harlem this October. Before coming here, they lived in places where they felt even expressing yourself was dangerous. But in our supportive housing, Lo says:

“I think that’s really the benefit of being here… if everybody is queer, then you’re not going to be targeted because of your queerness or because of your expression.” Lo adds, “I would love to build a network of other queer artists and hear their stories.”

When you give to Homeward NYC you…

  • Provide a safe home for homeless young families, older adults and LGBTQIA young adults
  • Support individualized care, skills-building, and aftercare programs for housing stability
  • Help residents heal from the related traumas of homelessness and abuse

We hope you’ll make a Live Life Forward gift today.

Thank you for empowering homeless young families, seniors, and LGBTQIA youth to live life forward!

All the best,
Homeward NYC
