2020 represents SpringBoard’s fourth #Spring2Action campaign. Over the past three years, we’ve raised funds for our Groundwork for Success program, our youth development programs, and our programs at large. We have decided to take a different approach as NYC and the world are facing a larger adversity, and we are doing it together. COVID-19 has exposed the lacking social safety net that Good Shepherd Services has long worked to create.
With a goal of $20,000, SpringBoard is committed to keeping essential services running, to paying essential staff the rates they deserve, and to keeping our communities safe and cared for.
Human services organizations provide vital services and resources daily throughout all of New York City, including to its most vulnerable populations. During times of crisis, this work is even more important. Unfortunately, for organizations like Good Shepherd Services, which operate largely through government reimbursement based upon program attendance, enrollment numbers, and other operational measurements, emergency situations can hit especially hard. Many of Good Shepherds Services' programs provide critical services including our residential and foster care programs and cannot close.
We are truly navigating unchartered waters in this moment. Good Shepherd Services’ SpringBoard and staff are working together to support and serve our fellow New Yorkers, particularly those among us with the fewest resources, even in “good” times.
