NMIC'S 40TH ANNIVERSARY BENEFIT
Thank you for making NMIC's 2019 Benefit a success!
Thank you for helping us we celebrate our 40th anniversary. Together, we honored our courageous clients, and partners and raised over $115,000. Together, we will continue to build futures, change lives, and empower communities.
We turned 40. That’s 40 years of building futures, changing lives, and empowering communities. We’ve come a long way from our humble beginnings in a small apartment in NYC, armed with nothing but a fierce passion to protect, strengthen, and organize a community of recent immigrants to the U.S.
Today, we at NMIC, still live by the same values but we’ve expanded our purpose to protect, strengthen, and empower NYC’s most vulnerable populations. Our aim has been, and still is, to be a catalyst for positive change in the lives of the over 14,000 individuals we serve annually. We do this through a range of services from providing support to domestic violence survivors, representing families facing eviction, to providing a young adult with the tools they need to jumpstart their career.
None of this would have been possible without the help of our amazing sponsors and friends. You can continue to support this critical work by donating.

Salomon Severin is one of NMIC’s most recent high school graduates – an achievement that has been four years in the making. Originally starting at NMIC in 2015 while living in a local group home, Salmon made steady progress every year – not missing a single semester of classes. Having had a difficult time in high school due to his disabilities, Salomon was determined to finally earn his diploma and go on to college to achieve his dream of working in broadcast journalism. Starting in August 2018, he took his first TASC exam and passed all subjects except science – which he passed a year later in August 2019. Salomon is now living independently and waiting to begin college in the Spring. This May he delivered a speech at city hall where he said “I learned that we must help each other and learn from each other – and when we do that, our chances for success are much greater.”
