Thank you to all who joined us last month to celebrate our 30th anniversary!
250 people attended the Brooklyn Winery celebration, raising more than $150,000 for Cypress Hills!
Our 30th anniversary also marked the premiere of Cypress Hills Local Development Corporation: Built to Last, a film about our work produced by East New York-based filmmaker Hemamset Angaza.
Take a moment to watch this film— it includes great footage of one of our affordable housing developments, under construction, and more!
Six months into 2013, and we have already expanded our college access work with a new initiative which connects 9th grade students with college-level courses. This edition of our newsletter will tell you all about our new program, as well as the story of one resident fighting to save their home, and how CHLDC helped!
As always, please enjoy this latest newsletter, and thank you for believing in Cypress Hills!
All my best,
