Last year, the pandemic ravaged our city and exposed deep inequities in our community. Nazareth Housing's team resolutely stepped forward and our doors stayed open to serve the needs of New York’s most vulnerable and underserved residents. Your support this past year has sustained Nazareth Housing as we continued our critical mission:

  • Feeding more than 94,000 individuals and distributing food to supplement 1,034,000 meals to our neighbors in the Lower East Side and the Bronx
  • Securing $509,000 in Emergency Relief Assistance funds (ERAP) to clear rental arrears for 102 households, staving off the threat of eviction
  • Providing free tax preparation services (VITA) to 325 households that yielded over $500,000 in tax refunds
  • Ensuring that every child in emergency family shelter advanced to the next grade in school despite the challenges of remote learning
  • Distributing nearly 1,000 Thanksgiving boxes with turkeys, fresh produce, and other goods

Today, as the city begins to emerge from the pandemic, we are resolved to do even more to assist low-income New Yorkers as they rebuild their lives in the aftermath of COVID. Vaccines have reduced the pain of the pandemic, but the pain of the recovery remains very real. Food insecurity remains high as inflation strains household budgets. Evictions are looming as rental arrears hit record levels. We see and hear the impact every week in the lines at our food pantry and on the urgent calls seeking help to forestall eviction. More than 350 households visit Louise’s Pantry each week to secure fresh produce, meat, and dairy. Nearly 75,000 families face possible loss of their housing when the NYC eviction moratorium ends in January. 

Our work is only possible with your continued support. We ask that you give as generously as you can this holiday season so that Nazareth Housing can continue to create pathways filled with hope and opportunity.
