60,000 people are homeless in NYC. Join me outside of Gracie Mansion this Wednesday, October 24 at 11AM to demand Mayor de Blasio expand affordable housing.
Marc Greenberg is the executive director of IAHH for Homelessness and Housing. All of Marc’s staff are formerly homeless. He demands that NYC government pay attention to the needs of the homeless, whose voices are largely unheard.
The homeless community needs hope and support. With the help of mental health services, life skills, and housing, it is possible to save wandering souls. When we see a fellow human asleep on the street, it should hurt all our hearts. If we look away, we perpetuate their invisibility.
Tonight when you eat your Shabbos meal, don’t forget that some individuals in NYC are going to sleep hungry.
Get involved. You can reach Marc Greenberg at email@example.com
to ask him how you can volunteer for his organization. He can also direct you to local volunteer groups in your area.

When people undermine your dreams, predict your doom or criticize you, REMEMBER, they’re telling your their story not yours.
My heart is so heavy today, the path I have chosen to be my career isn’t ‘normal’.
YES, I’m a personal trainer and I’m proud of it, I have no shame in saying that I’m freakin GREAT at it.
Of course, this isn’t the only thing I want to do in life but my passion is fitness and I’m going to live my dream life doing what I love, no matter what any one has to say about it.
Where I come from if you’re not an accountant/Doctor/lawyer you’re not successful or worth any respect. Doesn’t matter what your passion is or what makes you happy. You’re not desirable if you’re not one of those things.
Your friends think less of you, your faimly is ashamed of you, basically, you’re a disgrace.
It’s a constant battle for me to follow my dreams and still please other people cuz the two things just don’t align but I refuse to give up on my dreams.
I have such a clear vision of what I want in life and every fiber of my being tells me to chase it so that’s what I’m going to do. I may not have much to show for it now but you best believe I WILL in due time. .
All I’m trying to say is, please, oh please, if you are passionate about something, if you know inside you that you were meant for something more than what society or your friends or family tell you to do, then CHASE THAT DREAM.
Don’t settle for a life you’re not 100% happy about just to please others. It’s YOUR life, please live it on YOUR TERMS.
People will judge you no matter what so you might as well do what sets your soul on fire and makes you happy and at peace.
No dream is too little, whether you want to be a writer, a trainer, a dancer, a skateboarder, an artist, whatever it is, you can be GREAT at it and make a living off of it, don’t let others tell you how to live YOUR life.
Even if it’s the people closest to you, they mean well but they don’t always understand your path.
is anyone here residing in Portland, OR or close to it
