God's Blessings Plan is a nonprofit organization that focuses on Community Development and encouragement through economic empowerment and distributions of core necessities to those most vulnerable in the community.
Above all else, we are an organization that shows the love of Christ to all those we meet, and provide a judgement free zone to demonstrate just how much the people we serve are loved and valued by God and others. We strive to embody the two Great Commandments "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind" Matthew 22:37 and "Love your neighbor as yourself" Matthew 22:39
Our services are open to all people, no matter their religious background, and we do not push any religious point of view on anyone. The way we interact with those around us speak louder than words ever could.
Simply put, the love of God was the catalyst in starting God's Blessings Plan. Our founder would walk by various people in need of her help each day as she rushed back and forth to work. Riding the train wrapped up in her own world, rushing to pick up her child from daycare, she became generally hardened to what has become a "normal" part of living in a metropolitan area.
Over the course of many weeks, during her normal rushed commute, she prayed to God to show her how He wanted her to help. She didn't want to give money to possibly give aid in destructive coping mechanisms, but she couldn't bear to keep walking past all of God's children that He loves so dearly, as though they didn't even exist. She looked up one day during her walk to work and finally her eyes were opened. She saw a homeless man lying on the sidewalk, feeding the pigeons out of the little bit of bread he had. It was a moment that stopped her in her tracks. How can this man, who has so little, be so willing to share his food in such an unselfish way while she was too scared to even look him in the eye? God showed her in that moment anyone can help those around them if their heart is open and willing to love, the action will follow if we just trust Him.
"If someone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister in need but shows no compassion - how can God's love be in that person? Dear children, let's not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions." 1 John 3:17-18
We currently have two outreaches that span across New York City and Long Island:
1. Financial Clarity is the programming side of our nonprofit. We provide financial literacy classes to those living in temporary housing to give them a clearer understanding of how money works and increase their ability to gain and maintain permanent housing. We cover subjects such as how to balance your checkbook, budgeting and prioritizing expenses, how credit cards work, what is a credit score as well as credit history and its affects among many other financial topics.
2. The Blessing Initiative is our charitable outreach and provides food, toys for children during the holidays, blessings bags filled with toiletries and seasonal necessities, and disaster relief. Our outreach team has also partnered with other nonprofits to provide coats, clothing and shoes to women in domestic violence shelters as well as family shelters, schools and churches.
In addition to the program and items we supply we minister to each person we come in contact with to encourage them and give them hope and words of blessings over their lives. We are also there to be a listening ear, which is comforting to so many.
In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are currently organizing a fundraiser to get PPEs, including 3-ply masks, KN95 masks, face shields, safety goggles, gloves and cleaning supplies out to medical professionals in hospitals, first responders and members of the community in New York. So far we have been able to distribute over 20,000 PPEs to protect those most vulnerable to the virus and items have been so desperately needed in the field. From the height of the pandemic in March to present day, we have provided PPEs to The New York State Police, the 103rd Precinct in Jamaica Queens, the 2nd Precinct in Huntington Long Island, the 3rd Precinct in Brentwood Long Island, The Department of Corrections, St. Catherine's Hospital, Long Island Jewish Hospital, Wintrop Hospital, New York Presbyterian Hospital of Queens, NYU Langone Hospital, EMT/Ambulance units, Catholic Charities, various food pantries and countless families throughout NYC and Long Island. We are standing in the gap to provide what is needed most at this time of uncertainty in our world and community.
Your donation will help us to continue to get items to those that are most vulnerable during this time. Please show your support for those that are under-served and most vulnerable, those on the front lines and those that are literally risking their lives to save ours. They are our brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, friends and neighbors. We strive to ensure they know they are not forgotten and we will stand with them when they need us most during this time of uncertainty. We also ask that you pray for their protection, safety, wisdom and encouragement.
If you would like prayer or encouragement during these times, please send your prayer requests to info@GodsBlessingsPlan.org.
