Educational Alliance brings together diverse communities in Lower Manhattan, offering individuals and families high-quality, multi-generational programs and services that enhance their well-being and socioeconomic opportunities.
Through our involvement, we support classrooms in economically challenged communities across the country by assembling backpacks filled with school supplies. We help support the following programs:
Win transforms the lives of New York City homeless families by providing holistic solutions of safe housing, critical services, and ground-breaking programs they need to succeed on their own– so these families can regain their independence and their children can look forward to a brighter future.
Win’s vision is to break the cycle of homelessness by being the premier leader and trusted partner in innovative solutions for families in need.” Visit winnyc.org for more information.
Through Special Olympics New York, though, everyone is included. Athletes with intellectual disabilities have the opportunity to challenge themselves in fair and even competition. Win or lose, they develop their own character, make friends and find unknown wells of determination within themselves.
If you’re a fan of unity, acceptance, empowerment, dignity, pride and fun, you’re a fan of Special Olympics New York. You’re one of us.

More than 300 BRC Homeless Outreach staff work around the clock to provide hope, help, and a hand up to New Yorkers experiencing homelessness.
BRC’s Outreach Teams meet many individuals that have been relying upon their own resilience and resourcefulness to survive for a long time. On average, an individual living unsheltered will have to be contacted by service providers more than 100 times before they will agree to enter into a more appropriate living situation.
BRC’s Outreach Teams listen, motivate, and seek to understand the person underneath the trauma. Over time, they build trust and relationships with clients so that when the individual is ready to seek lasting shelter and safety, they know that they can turn to BRC for the help that they need.
