What we're about

Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

This group is dedicated to people who work or aspire to work at a non-profit organization. Getting to know one another through volunteering, charity events, seminars, or just learning from each other can be a life enriching process. Please help bring more awareness to the public of opportunities where we as a group can make an impact to our community and friends. Most of all, show your support in your fellow members and events.

I also want to dedicate appreciation and recognition to those who work 7 days a week endlessly putting others above their own needs. This means also to create fun in their personal time, if any.

Let's build a better community TOGETHER! Participate in the nonprofit movement, be the leader that you always imagined yourself to be, together we can make a bigger impact in our socio- economic norms and mold a better future.

Helping the homeless to get off the streets this winter

Needs a location

Hello all,
I was extremely saddened by this weekend's brutal killing of 4 homeless people in lower manhattan.

I have contacted the Bowery mission to help and see what we can do as a community to provide food and shelter for the homeless.
This is an endless effort.

I encourage you all to helpout whenever, and whatever you have to get them off the streets, and to clean up the shelter and talk to the government to get programs incentives to allow landlords to use up their vacant space, even if its a few months for the winter.
Many of you do not know that homeless people choose to be outside, because they don't feel safe in shelters. Or because of their illness that they do not want contact with people or helping themselves.

Bowery mission helps manhattan folks - with shelter/ food/ clothing.
Please help 1 at a time.
IF you have other resourses to share or events to share, Please POST!

Thanks all.


Thank you for reaching out. We were also stunned and heartbroken by this horrific attack.

I truly admire the work that you do—I think the events of this weekend present a call for all of NYC’s nonprofits that deal with homelessness and its tangential issues to work together and form a unified front, so I am grateful for your interest and passion.

I encourage you to check out our volunteer site and please reach out with any questions or if this is not what you are looking for. If you are looking for something more specific, I’m happy to jump on a call. Let me know what makes the most sense.

Thank you—hope you had a nice weekend.

All the best,
