New Yorkers are struggling. People in District 32- are struggling. This global pandemic has taught us one thing- we must stand together. May businesses are currently struggling to remain open. Many have fallen short and will never be able to restore the losses. Many have been evicted and kicked out of their homes and are currently facing an economic crisis and a housing crisis all while having to make a decision that would be best for their child. Now is the time that our community stands together and support one another during these troubling times. I hope the compiled list of resources can be of help to you and your families. As always, please feel free to reach out to us should you need any help connecting to city resources or require any support!
