transforms the lives of New Yorkers by preparing under-employed

underresourced NYC communities. Through our critical home repair
and accessibility modifications program, we improve the safety,

we re-skill individuals for union apprenticeships. Lastly, through
our community revitalization program we provide opportunities for
volunteers to renovate and update non-profit and community
