Join us on Thursday, October 3rd  

320 Park Avenue New York, NY | at 6:30 PM

We invite you to our 40th anniversary celebration for a life-changing event as we honor our courageous clients, our partners, and you. Together we will continue to build futures, change lives, and empower communities. The evening will begin at 6:30 with cocktails and dinner, and culminates with an exciting award ceremony and silent auction.  

 


Celebrating 40 years of building futures, changing lives, and empowering communities. NMIC has grown from its humble beginnings that started in a small apartment in NYC with a fierce passion to protect, strengthen, and organize a community of recent immigrants to the U.S. Today NMIC exists with the same values and an expanded purpose to protect, strengthen, and empower NYC’s most vulnerable populations. Our services range from providing support to domestic violence survivors, representing families facing eviction, or providing a young adult with the tools they need to jumpstart their career; our aim has been and remains to be a catalyst for positive change in the lives of over 14,000 individuals annually.

 

Join us for a quick walk down memory lane as we remember our past, honor the present, and build the future.
