New Initiative: “Adopt a Shelter” for Families Seeking Asylum in the United States

August 25, 2023 | Repairing the World

Currently, around 50,000 asylum seekers are being housed by the city in hotels and shelters. As a Jewish community, we have a special obligation to welcome and support those seeking refuge in New York. Teaming up with the Mayor's Office of Faith-Based Partnerships, Central has been paired with Hotel 46.

Your support is vital to providing essentials for the 70 families, including infants and school-age children. Urgently needed items include school supplies, toys, car seats, strollers, and hygiene products. You can purchase items through our Amazon Wishlist.
