United States Sponsorship

Many of New York City’s almost 2,000,000 children are living in some of the roughest inner-city neighborhoods. They face hunger, gang violence, drugs and crime on a daily basis. Sometimes when we visit a child, we find them living with eight or nine siblings in a tiny apartment with no food in the home. Often they are in homeless shelters with their entire families.

As a sponsor, you can help meet their physical needs and you can also be a positive influence on a child who is surrounded by so many negative ones. You can help a child get out of the inner-city environment by sponsoring a trip to summer camp or provide school supplies or a toy for Christmas. These items, normal in other parts of the country, mean the world to poor inner-city children, many of whom have never received anything at all for their birthday or for Christmas.
