In the world today, resilience is a muscle we flex now perhaps more than any other time in recent history. Every organization and community is dealing with challenges they couldn’t have predicted. But we know the injection of the right support at the right time can help individuals, families, and communities to rebound and thrive. Our Resilience Grants do just that in the specific areas of greatest need and opportunity. Thus far we have distributed $127,000 in Resilience Grants, directly impacting the lives of over 15,000 refugee and immigrant individuals across the country.
Resilience Grants are a benefit of membership with the Hello Neighbor Network and present a streamlined opportunity for grassroots organizations to apply for what they need to rebound, respond, and thrive in an ever-changing environment.

We were so thankful to have received this grant from the Hello Neighbor Network and The Good People Fund! We used this grant to pay for a portion of this kayaking excursion for our families, hosted by another local nonprofit. For many of our families, it was their first time on the Hudson River or in a kayak — or both! A group of volunteers got together to provide childcare for the the kids who were too small to participate so that their grown-ups and older siblings wouldn’t miss out!

We spent it on Esther, who moved into a new house. She has always dreamed of owning her own home, and this was one step closer to this as she will be renting this house — and learning what it means to take care of a house. With the funding, we paid for a Uhaul to move her, as well as an air conditioner for one of their bedrooms, an extension cord/duct tape to secure the cord to her TV.
