Church Meets City is an initiative of Trinity’s Justice and Reconciliation Department that seeks to address the growing needs of New York City by raising awareness, connecting people to services, and developing relationships between service providers and those in need.
If there are services you need, we want to help you connect with the right resources and services.
If you are looking to contribute, we can point you toward volunteer opportunities.
And if you are wondering what we do at Trinity—and how your church or organization could develop similar outreach—we invite you to learn along with us as we evolve our programs and partnerships in New York City.
Food Insecurity and Homelessness: An NYC Snapshot
Trinity Church Wall Street convened a day-long event in April called “Church Meets City” to help some of its neighbors better navigate and access the human services offered by New York City. Among the most persistent problems in the city are food insecurity and homelessness and, as the Rev. Winnie Varghese points out, recent statistics paint a very challenging picture.
