2017 was definitely full of challenges, particularly for an organization whose mission is to welcome Immigrants and Refugees by giving them the tools they need to build their futures in New York.
In spite of the challenges, 2017 was our most successful year ever and we are extremely grateful to all our funders, partners, donors, and friends who made that happen. I am also grateful to the terrific BCNA team for the amazing impact they are having on clients' lives and New York communities.
We were particularly honored last week to accept a Special Achievement Award from the the SBA, New York District, for the 10th year in a row for "Most Loans Made by a Microlender."
And last but not least, we are celebrating the holidays with a special pop-up Art Exhibition this week benefiting our refugee programs. Please stop by to say hello or perhaps even to find a special holiday gift!
