New York City Relief, Inc.
November 22, 2010

This is everybody's favorite place to volunteer in NYC. I came as part of a team and most of us are repeat volunteers. It is especially meaningful to be able to engage people on the street who are really in need. Some of the conversations I have had are "lifetime" memories. I especially appreciate the staff, who are dedicated compassionate people. And, I also appreciate that they are well organized. It's an amazing organization!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Sometimes people return to the bus site to thank a volunteer who helped them and to report on their progress in job-finding, housing, work on restoration of their family, that sort of thing.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

say, MORE Relief Buses!

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & I helped serve food, clothing and conversed with the homeless.
