About a year ago, our team was motivated to start this initiative after we saw the number of homeless people on 7th Avenue alone. This forced us to start researching about the homeless and homeless shelters in NYC. We were shocked by the numbers and wanted to do something to help out.
Recently, due to the novel Corona-virus pandemic, the less fortunate have been highly susceptible to catching this deadly virus. We decided to launch Help Homeless Long Island so we can provide supplies for homeless shelters that have been trying to take care of the homeless.
During the current situation it is hard for many homeless shelters to purchase key goods due the very demand and low supply. Here at Help Homeless LI we will be donating different kinds of goods to homeless shelters so they can operate throughout these difficult conditions.
We will be donating goods like toothbrushes, toothpaste, socks, soaps, water.
Nassau Haven provides emergency shelter and short-term housing with 12 co-ed beds to runaway and homeless youth in Nassau County. Since 1982, Nassau Haven has helped young adults aged 10-20 seeking shelter by providing a community and a home environment. Many other services are also provided such as assistance with resolving family conflict or establishing long-term housing for the future.
