Trinity is committed to working alongside the people that live in, work in, and govern Lower Manhattan to identify the strengths and challenges that shape our lives, and co-design solutions that will help everyone in this neighborhood thrive. Together with our Investments and Trinity Church Wall Street Philanthropies teams, we are working to bring needed resources to New Yorkers to create a better tomorrow.
As part of the launch of the Neighborhood Support division, Trinity invited community residents, local leaders, policymakers, nonprofit workers, and others who live and work in Lower Manhattan for an interactive Town Hall in October 2021. Watch this video to learn more about the session and the path we have planned for this work.
To inform a grantmaking strategy and advocacy agenda, Trinity’s Neighborhood Support division collaborated with the Center for Community Resilience (CCR) at George Washington University to conduct a needs assessment, which highlights potential starting points to address immediate community needs in Lower Manhattan, as well as building long-term efforts to address inequities.
Starting January 2022
In an effort to address the challenges exacerbated by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Trinity Church Wall Street is partnering with Pace University’s Thomas J. McShane Center for Psychological Services to offer free counseling services for our Lower Manhattan community. Interested individuals can use Trinity’s Resource Connections line to now request a referral for these services via our Community Wellness program.

Our outreach work in New York City includes supporting those who are struggling with basic needs or are marginalized by society and challenging unjust systems that oppress and harm the most vulnerable in our society. If there are services you need, we want to help connect you with the right resources.
With sharp rises in the unemployment rate, the cost of groceries, and the number of people seeking assistance from food pantries and soup kitchens, food insecurity is at an all-time high in New York City. Trinity remains committed to helping our neighbors in need through programs, such as Resource Connections, Compassion Meals, and Trinity Pop-ups for grocery distribution.
