Restoration is Here to help!

Greetings from the Center for Healthy Neighborhoods! Over the past few months we pivoted our focus to meet the immediate needs of our community. We paid special attention to the rising food need; we have been providing emergency food relief, including distributing farm shares and had a dedicated staff member calling our members to help them navigate emergency food resources that became available. Restoration’s Center for Personal Financial Health has also switched many of our services online, including tax prep, public benefits, job placements, and mental health services.
  • Food. Our FREE farm share at 630 Flushing Avenue operates on Fridays at 12pm, distributing up to 100 food bags, and also offering a limited number of deliveries to those who are not able to come out. Starting this week, each bag will also contain health conscious recipes from our partnership with Brooklyn based chef, Karen Cherfils. Please see the attached flyers and feel free to share with your families and participants. In addition to our ongoing farm share, we currently have staff working as food navigators to help enroll community members into GetFood NYC to receive free meal deliveries and to access other food resources. If you need more information, please reach out to Jesicca Joseph at jjoseph@restorationplaza.org.
  • Cash Assistance: Restoration is offering $400 dollars in Covid-19 relief to up to 500 Central Brooklyn families in need. Click this link to learn more. In order to be considered for this emergency cash grant, please complete this brief pre-screening application: https://slgr.typeform.com/to/jTkYn0
  • Diapers and Masks. In addition to our cash assistance program, we are delivering free newborn diapers (size 1 only) to those in need. Interested individuals can sign up here. We also have masks in bulk to provide to organizations for distribution. Organizations that would like to receive masks from us should contact Junior Duplessis through jduplessis@restorationplaza.org.
  • Care Coordination. Whether you are looking to access public benefits, prepare your taxes, are anxious about your finances and family or just need someone to speak to, we are here for you. We have rolled out an online portal to complete intake forms and schedule appointments. Please complete our brief intake form so we can see how we might help and support you.
  • Financial Counseling. Understandably, you will have questions about making your budget work and navigating and addressing pressing expenses from rent to mortgage to student loans. We have a team of financial counselors (English, Spanish, Haitian Creole) who can provide financial counseling services by phone. Please go to the website: nyc.gov/talkmoney to make an appointment, and select Bed Stuy Restoration Corporation as the service provider.
  • Employment Services. We recognize that this pandemic may impact your participants’ employment status. We want to help you prepare for how the world of work is inevitably shifting, while being sure to keep our community safe and healthy.
  • Resume and Interviewing Support: In one on one telephone sessions with our Training and Placement team, you will have the opportunity to create or update your resume and/or prepare for interviews that are likely to be conducted on the phone or in a video conferencing format.

Please do share flyers below with your family & friends:
