Social Initiatives


"These are difficult times. As a food insecurity program focused on feeding the hungry and homeless, recent times have been difficult with our guests. With cutbacks in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits and the recent government shutdown, our Café (aka Soup Kitchen) meals have increased 30% and our Food Pantry has provided many more emergency bags of food. The Inner-City Foundation was our second largest funder last year. The grant was vitally important as we were able to increase the number of shoppers in our Food Pantry and we were able to increase the amount of fresh and frozen food we could purchase..."

- John Gutman, Executive Director, New Covenant Center


"Inspirica's mission is to break the cycle of homelessness by addressing both the physical components of homelessness and its underlying root causes. With The Inner-City Foundation's generous support we have been able to move more than 1,000 men, women and children into permanent housing and make more than 1,000 job placements over the past several years, moving more of our clients from homeless, to home."

- Nzinga King, Director of Development, Inspirica, Inc.

Addiction and Recovery

"The Inner-City Foundation for Charity and Education has helped save the lives of women we serve through our Families in Recovery Program. Funding from The Inner-City makes it possible for us to offer treatment to moms and pregnant women left with nowhere to turn.

Women learn how to live new lives in recovery, acquiring better parenting and self-suffiency skills making it possible for them to take that next step in life. Addiction is a deadly disease. Our goal is that not one more person loses their life due to substance abuse. Our hope is that their children will grow up healthy and safe with a mom who is there for them every step of the way."

- John Hamilton, President, Liberation Programs

Domestic Violence

"The Inner-City Foundation's support of our organization makes it possible for us to sustain two 24/7 hotlines for victims of domestic and sexual violence, offer safe and secure shelter for adults and children fleeing from violence in their homes and provide counseling and support services to anyone turning to us for help, free of charge. This support has provided and continues to provide a critically needed lifeline for the thousands we serve annually."

- Pat Zachman, President & CEO, Women's Center of Greater Danbury
