Commit to Justice this Fall

Open Hands will begin a new initiative to fund two of our legal aid desks for 2018. Our goal is to kick off the fall season by raising $25,000 to fund all 24 legal aid desks for the year at Father's Heart Ministries and The Relief Bus. If 60 new donors join our "Justice Circle" monthly giving program by October 20th, we will hit this goal in five weeks. I hope that you will be able to join us in this effort. To sign up for our monthly giving program now, click here!

Volunteer Corner

We had a great time at our summer social last month and each of our legal aid desks. Our faithful volunteers had the opportunity to win ice cream from Alphabet Scoop by using all of the knowledge they have obtained through the "Stay Tuned, Stay Informed" emails that Jean Soo sends about specific legal matters. We also had the opportunity to head down to Pier 46 to watch a movie in the park and enjoy a happy hour social at M1-5. Make sure to check out the pictures on our Facebook page!

Join us on Monday, September 25th at 7:00pm for a special training on immigration law. The session will end at 9:00pm and take place at the New York City Rescue Mission located at 90 Lafayette Street on the 6th floor. A light dinner will be served. Click here to register.
