Yesterday we published Matthew Fishbane’s searing portrait of nine Holocaust survivors living in poverty in New York City. The piece was incredibly moving, not just for its beautiful photographs and heartbreaking audio, but for its staggering statistics: one in four of the 140,000 Holocaust survivors in the United States are living at or below the poverty line.

The response we got was overwhelming, with many people asking how they can help. Below is a list of some of the organizations helping Holocaust survivors in New York:

Masbia Soup Kitchen Network

Connect2: Friendly Visiting for Holocaust Survivors

Jewish Community Center of Greater Coney Island

The Blue Card

Selfhelp Community Services

Claims Conference: The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany

Mitzvah Man

Met Council Home Services

YM & YWHA of Washington Heights and Inwood
