With a population of more than 8.6 million, New York City is a thriving, dynamic place. But within this mass of people living in the city, there are nearly 79,000 who are homeless, while others are enduring a poverty rate of more than 43 percent. Send Relief missionaries Taylor Field and Andrew Mann have a goal of revitalizing communities by building relationships with people from all backgrounds and walks of life. Send Relief is partnering with Graffiti 2 Community Ministries as we share their desire to “Meet the Need – First."
It is in this time of urgent need that you have the greatest opportunity to give practical assistance, make personal connections, and share the gospel.
