Invest in Youth

New City Neighbors is currently in transition. As Fourth Reformed Church has dissolved its partnership with New City Neighbors, we turn to face the reality that we will no longer be able to run a cafe on the church grounds after this year, or be able to keep our urban farm beyond 2021. We’re grieving the loss of these programs that allowed us to empower our youth and to serve our community.

Yet, we are encouraged by so many who have asked, “How can we help?” We’re so grateful for the support of our community! We are developing a new strategic plan to find a path forward. We have some exciting ideas, but we know that we’ll need future financial seeds for whatever comes next. This summer, we have a goal of raising $20,000. (*Update – We’ve reached our goal!)

A lot of little hands, help lift a heavy load. Together we can continue transforming our community and empowering our youth. Below are a few of the different ways to make a financial investment in our youth. Consider giving a one-time or a monthly gift this year. You can also give a gift in honor or memory of someone special. Your support makes a huge impact.
