We asked, and you responded. If you are one of loyal supporters who has become a a sustaining giver and a Partner for the Future through our monthly giving program — THANK YOU!
You can give at any level, from $10 to $100 per month. And every dollar counts. Did you know that $10 a month — roughly 30 cents a day — will buy after-school snacks for one of the kids in our after school programs? It’s a small act of kindness that can make all the difference to a family trying to keep a kid in school.
We are grateful for your support, whether it is $.30 or $30 a day. Which is why we’d like to invite you to come to a fun event.

Here’s what the staff at NEW will tell you: Some homeless people may be a bit too broken to put back together. But a large number are no any different than you and me. The difference is they didn’t have someone to help them back up in time after the last hurdle. They’re fully aware of what needs to be done to resolve their situation. They just haven’t had a chance to catch their breath yet because they’re too busy surviving. And through it all, they remain determined and hard working, and value an education if they don’t have one.
In other words, they’re like Belinda Whitfield. Read more
Cynthia Rowe — who will be recognized with the NEW Light Alumna Award at our gala next month — busts many stereotypes that persist about the homeless. She is educated, has a daughter about to graduate college, worked at big name companies that provided retirement plans. She comes from a large family with whom she is still very much in touch. And although she may not have had a consistent roof over her head while homeless, she was never without safe shelter. “I couch-surfed,” she says matter-of-factly.
So what is her story? How does someone with that many factors in favor of stability come to NEW? Read more
