October 13, Tuesday - December 18, Friday Project Ife's 2nd. Annual (Project Ife)
at New York City

The purpose of this project is to help homeless people in NYC stay warm during the harsh winter season. This is done by distributing “Warm Packs” comprised of a warm hat, pair of gloves, socks, mylar thermal blankets & hot chocolate along with some helpful resource material such as NYC food program location cards and lists of temporary housing programs in NYC. 

We launched our first Warm The People project last winter and it was a success. We were able to purchase enough gloves, hats, socks and hot chocolate at a wholesale rate to service over 100 homeless folks living in Penn Station alone.  We invaded Penn Station on a cold winter morning with our hearts and backpacks full of love and within an hour over 100 less fortunate people were a little more prepared for the harsh cold awaiting them outside the train station.  

This year we want to expand our reach.The money will be used to purchase enough “Warm Kits”  to service over 500 homeless folks living on the street this winter. We would like to start purchasing the material by early December, 2015.

Noon at Union Theological Seminary, 3041 Broadway/121st Street
None: FREE   Tickets: None

Healing from child sexual abuse is a journey that does not have an end date. However, the healing process begins with stopping the lonely and painful cycle of secrecy. Remember, you are not alone! Survivors are everywhere. 

Each year in the U.S. more than 300,000 children are sexually abused. In fact, in the U.S. alone, there are approximately 60 million survivors of child sexual abuse (CSA). It's an abuse that is indiscriminate, cutting across gender, race, culture, familial socio-economic status, religion and other diversities. 

Join ALTSDS Church on Saturday, December 12, 2015 at 12:00 PM in a service to honor the value, dignity and humanity of child sexual abuse survivors. Special Guest Speaker & CSA Educator: DeShannon Barnes-Bowens, M.S., ILERA Founder, Psychotherapist & Author of Hush Hush ( "There is beauty in every soul. There is value in every person. There is hope that is stronger than your pain! You are a survivor!" -Clara Hinton, Child Sexual Abuse Advocate.
