Once again, through the connections of our Priest Associate The Rev. Dr. Gideon Jebamani, we have the opportunity to help a deserving young woman from the Dalit caste in India. Angel Geetharani is going into her second year of schooling and is requesting our help. We are hoping to raise $1000.00 for her 2021-2022 studies. I pray we are able to help lift this deserving young woman out of poverty.

Please send your check to St John's Church, One Hudson Street, Yonkers NY 10701. Check writers should put "Dalit  tuition" in the memo line. Thank you.

Know your rights as a rent voucher holder!

Since 2019, it is illegal for landlords and real estate brokers in New York State to refuse to show and/or rent apartments to people because they receive government assistance to pay their rent. In other words, you cannot be treated differently by a broker or landlord simply because you use a voucher to cover some or all of your rent. While this form of discrimination is very common, it is often difficult to detect because it is not always explicit. Please click here to continue reading Know your rights!
