Dear Community,

I extend our heartfelt support to you and your loved ones during this crisis.There are so many uncertainties for all of us that are impacting every facet of our lives. Our daily routines have been upended and replaced with unpredictable circumstances that are changing daily. Please rest assured that we are here with you and for you.

Since moving to supporting our clients remotely, we have continued to advocate for stable housing and supporting the victorious statewide eviction moratorium that was enacted last week, our teachers are connecting with our students to support them as they independently complete their work, and we are championing our Census work by means of our digital platforms – stay tuned for informational videos!

Now is the time to lead with compassion – in every way – even beyond our work. We are strong but you make us stronger and I know that together, we will help our community rise.

If you have any questions regarding our services, please call 212-822-8300 or email us at I encourage you to follow us on our social media platforms @NMICnyc.

Holding you in thought,

Maria Lizardo, MSW
Executive Director
