“Many of our immigrants come to us with just the clothes on their backs,” says Fortitude House Program Director Bardha Fusha, MSW. “We have seen a lot of them go through detention centers, where they are stripped of any belongings that they may have. We are so appreciative of the donations that come through our doors because they are distributed to our families who are in need and have limited resources. Every donation counts and goes a long way for our 84 families at Fortitude House.”

We thank the Michael Shapot Team at Keller Williams for organizing a clothing drive. They delivered over 50 bags of clothing, sorted by gender, to our Brooklyn sanctuary.
