The natural disasters that have recently devastated regions of our country, the Caribbean and Mexico have impacted so many lives, including members of our community in New York City.
At the Alliance, our hearts ache for those who have lost their possessions, homes, livelihoods, and family members. Our Alliance community knows how it feels to face challenges, big and small, and we encourage anyone who has struggled to live better and do better to help out where you can.
There is an incredible need for support in the recovery process in the days, weeks, and months ahead.
We are with you during these calamitous times, and we share in your pain.
If you are looking for ways to help, we recommend several organizations that are on the frontlines of recovery:
