The Open Door
The New York metropolitan area has one of the highest immigrant populations in the country. Immigrants contribute to the area's growth, diversity, and economic prosperity. However, low-income immigrant families often face difficulty in every area of life, including employment, medical care, housing, and education. Many individuals feel isolated from their support networks, and children of immigrants experience disruption in their education as parents struggle to meet their basic needs. The Open Door NJNY addresses these problems by equipping individuals with skills they need to successfully integrate into our society. Classes meet weekly to engage the mind, develop relationships, and build confidence. As a result, individuals find hope, families are strengthened, and communities are transformed.
