In addition, the funding will help with the provision of direct services, such as basic cleaning supplies, and digital access for caseworkers and homeless schoolchildren. All 17 organizations are current Trinity grantees, with a history of strong partnership and positive outcomes for those in need.“Trinity is focusing our support on New Yorkers with some of the greatest needs at the moment—the homeless and formerly incarcerated, who are often overlooked during times of crisis but suffer the most,” said the Rev. Phillip A. Jackson, Priest-in-Charge and Vicar of Trinity Church Wall Street. “COVID-19 is further magnifying the inequities in our city and only strengthens our calling and commitment to end the cycles of mass homelessness and mass incarceration.”Trinity’s Chief Philanthropy Officer, Neill Coleman, said, “This is a rapidly moving crisis and time is of the essence. It was important to us to be able to provide grants, and support loans, through an expedited approval process so these organizations can provide service without interruption, and our most vulnerable neighbors can receive the support they need.”The organizations that received Trinity grants are:• African Communities Together• Bowery Residents Committee• Chinese-American Planning Council, Inc.• Coalition for the Homeless, Inc.• Exodus Transitional Community, Inc.• Girls for Gender Equity Inc.• Housing Plus Solutions, Inc.• Local Initiatives Support Corp. (LISC)• Neighbors Together Corp.• Osborne Association• Research Foundation of the City University of New York (Prisoner Reentry Institute)• Robert Daniel Jones Refugee Shelter (St. Mary’s Manhattanville Episcopal Church)• The Fortune Society• Urban Pathways• Voices of Community Activists & Leaders• Women in Need, Inc.• Women’s Prison Association & Home Inc.As part of its support, Trinity is contributing a $2 million program-related investment (PRI) to nonprofit lender and consultant Nonprofit Finance Fund (NFF) to support its work in administering loans through the NYC COVID-19 Response & Impact Fund. The $75 million NYC COVID-19 Response & Impact Fund, launched on March 20 through a partnership of leading philanthropic organizations, is providing grants and loans to New York City nonprofit organizations working in the human services and arts sectors to ensure continuity in operations for those providing critical services to New Yorkers in need.Trinity’s investment will support the loan component of the initiative, which is being operated by NFF. The PRI will provide assistance primarily to nonprofit organizations that serve populations affected by the legacy of racism and those caught in the cycle of mass incarceration and homelessness.“Through a combination of grants, to address urgent needs like food and cleaning supplies, as well as loans, to help organizations maintain their basic operations, we want to help the most vulnerable access shelter, safety, and dignity,” Coleman said.About Trinity Church Wall StreetNow in its fourth century, Trinity Church Wall Street is a growing and inclusive Episcopal parish of more than 1,200 members that seeks to serve and heal the world by building neighborhoods that live Gospel truths, generations of faithful leaders, and sustainable communities.

Bendtner focused on taking chance

first_img Arsenal went on to win the match 2-0 and stay four points clear of Chelsea as Arsene Wenger’s men continued to lay down a marker for a long overdue sustained assault on the Premier League crown. Wenger feels Bendtner, who was close to leaving in the summer, has the attributes to produce consistent performances if he is fully focused, and the 6ft 3in forward intends to do just that as Arsenal get set for a testing run of fixtures. “It was a fantastic feeling, I think my celebration for the goal was a show of that,” Bendtner told Arsenal Player. “It was my first Premier League game this season, so I am pleased to have scored and that we won. “It has been difficult for the players who have not been in the team because we have had such good form and the players who have played have been magnificent. “With the way people play now, it looks like whoever comes in takes it in his stride and goes with it, that showed again because there were a couple of changes and everybody played well.” There is little respite ahead for Arsenal who host Everton on Sunday, then travel to Napoli for their final Champions League group match before a crunch clash at Manchester City on Saturday lunchtime. Bendtner said: “We are very much looking forward to it because we know this is a very hard period coming up and we need everybody to be focused and sharp, but we will take just one game at a time and try to put the points on the table.” Nicklas Bendtner admits it has been tough watching from the bench as Arsenal stormed to the top of the Barclays Premier League, but remains ready for when his next chance will come. Press Associationcenter_img The 25-year-old Denmark international was recalled to the Gunners’ starting XI against Hull on Wednesday night to give leading forward Olivier Giroud a rest – and headed the hosts in front inside two minutes. It was Bendtner’s first goal for Arsenal since March 2011, following when he had several unsuccessful loan spells and hit the headlines with his off-field behaviour last month following a Police caution for causing damage to an apartment building where he lives. last_img read more
