Since 1979, NMIC has been a source of support and opportunities for the most vulnerable community members in upper Manhattan, and now the Bronx. Throughout our history, we have constantly grown and evolved to meet the ever-changing needs of our community. Today we serve more than 14,000 community members each year, and with your help, we can serve even more!

On October 4th NMIC and our honorees, who have made fundamental contributions locally and nationally, will celebrate and advocate for those we serve. Join us at the International House, 500 Riverside Drive from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM and help us raise funds to continue providing critical services like immigration relief, preserving and developing affordable housing, and supporting survivors of intimate partner violence.
