$2.2 Million Effort Launched to Help Asylum Seekers Se Pone En Marcha Una ...


Foundation: New York Community Trust

"From the very beginning, our local nonprofits and community-based organizations have stepped up to fill the gaps and shouldered the heroic work of supporting newly arriving people and families," says New York City Council Speaker Adrienne Adams in announcing a $2.2 million effort to help asylum seekers settle into their new lives in the city.

The effort, known as Welcome NYC, will fund services including legal services, workforce development, literacy programs, youth services, faith-based services, and food assistance, the New York Daily News reports.

More than 47,000 people seeking asylum in the US have arrived in New York City since last spring, and more than 29,000 remain in the city, mostly in emergency shelters and emergency response centers, the New York Times reports.

"By harnessing the power of government and philanthropy, Welcome NYC will help us meet the needs of all asylum seekers arriving in New York City," says Dr.isha Porter, president of the Bronx Community Foundation, which will receive $1.2 million of the $2.2 million.

Several philanthropic foundations are contributing $1 million to the effort, including the Robin Hood Foundation, New York Community Trust, Bronx Community Foundation, New York Women's Foundation, and Brooklyn Community Foundation. Read the Entire Article
