The situation

Thousands of refugees are being held in processing centers

Across New York City, thousands of refugees are being held in processing centers as the city is overwhelmed by more than 95,000 new migrants who have arrived by bus from states like Texas and Florida.

NYC Mayor Eric Adams a NYC Governor Kathy Hochul requested federal funding, but in the immediate term people are in need of food, clothing, and sanitary supplies. Minimal food is being provided – sometimes just powdered protein – and migrants are going days without the ability to wash their bodies. The conditions are inhumane.

How we can help

Open Avenues Foundation is partnering with EVLovesNYC, a non-profit organization that aims to end food insecurity in NYC. EVLovesNYC has provided more than 400,000 meals to those in need in NYC and have been at the front lines each day providing food and essentials to migrant families and individuals who are waiting to make their asylum claims and 6+ months for work authorization.
