Who We've Helped

Helping Mrs. B

Mrs. B. came to us in arrears with ConEd, Verizon and rent, depressed and speaking almost in a whisper of her life of hard work and hard-won independence, working in the clothing industry. She felt she had always been a generous person, even giving a good portion of her life savings to a church in Pennsylvania where she lived at the time,  knowing that she would long be part of their caring community.

Helping Ms. R

Ms. R  is a 63-year-old recent widow. Originally from the Dominican Republic, Ms. R spent most of her adult life in New York City. For most of her life, Ms. R lived in a rent-stabilized apartment in Washington Heights with her husband from Mexico. When her husband passed away Ms. R. became depressed and did not follow through on paying her bills—as her husband had always taken care of this.

Helping Mrs. L

Mrs. L. was 102 years old and had lived in the same apartment for 50 years, for part of that raising her grand-daughter. When the building scheduled renovations to her apartment, she was placed in a temporary unit, and her grand-daughter went along.

Let us hear from you! We’ll get back to you shortly.
