Review for Palante Harlem Inc, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Palante doesn't just help residents being harassed by slumlords they help bring the community together. For example, last year the organization hosted a candidate debate in Harlem. A housing non-profit has never attempted to do something like that before. CEO and owner, Elsia Vasquez understands how important politicians are in solving the problems with housing in NYC and so she made them accessible. Palante is Harlem

Review for Palante Harlem Inc, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

For me, P.A.'L.A.N.T.E. was an unknown gem nestled in the heart of Harlem. From the moment I walked in as a volunteer I saw a small, tight knit team dedicated to serving the community, fighting for the men and women struggling to house their families in livable, safe places they can call home.

As someone who has found a passion in fighting for social justice and civil rights I knew I was going to remain committed to this organization. During my time at P.A.'L.A.N.T.E. I have seen with my own eyes lives changed, deplorable living conditions fixed, depressed and scared tenants renewed and reinvigorated. I watch as people come in frightened and overwhelmed by their circumstances but after receiving guidance from the staff they leave armed with knowledge and feel empowered to tackle and resolve their situations. P.A.'L.A.N.T.E. changes tenants' lives for the better. Can't say the same for their slumlords though!
