We believe in helping people realize their full potential, and that applies to our staff members as well as to the 7,000 people we serve. As we reflect on the year that has passed and enter a new year, we share some of the fresh starts that have taken place under LSSNY’s welcoming tent. These are the Faces of LSSNY. We are proud to make a difference in the lives of underserved New Yorkers. We offer our heartfelt thanks to all of you who help us do this.
