Kingsbridge Heights Community Center (KHCC) is an effective organization established in 1974 in a former police station, by three local women who wanted a better future for children and families in the Bronx. KHCC’s commitment to empowering Bronx residents has created pathways to collective success and access to critical resources for 5,500 low-income families, and recent immigrants annually, of which 78% live below the poverty line.
Your support will be particularly crucial at this time, as this Bronx community has been particularly hard hit by COVID-19 with 63% of participants losing their jobs, and 78% in need of food from KHCC’s food pantry. Additionally, the need for support provided by KHCC’s 17 therapists to survivors of domestic and sexual violence has doubled during this time period.
In this increased time of need, KHCC is also facing funding cuts from government and private funders, and this situation is exasperated as they are unable to do their traditional in-person fundraising events to help bring in much needed additional support. Of all funds raised for KHCC 87% goes directly to programming.
I would love for you to join me in support of KHCC so that they can continue to run the high-quality programming that provides critical andcomprehensive supports including: 1) domestic violence, child sexual abuse, and campus assault survivor services, 2) special needs, youth, and college access programming, 3) early childhood education, 4) nutrition and food access services, 5) english language classes, and 6) KHCConnect which customizes emergency support to families in crisis, including help with finding housing, food through the pantry, legal assistance, childcare, and trauma therapy.
