The West Side Rag and The Real Deal Cover our Work in Housing, Volunteering

How do people get involved in volunteering, and why? This lovely story from the West Side Spirit quotes longtime Goddard volunteer Beth Puffer and our former volunteer coordinator, Crystal Walker.

Few reporters have covered the fortunes of New York’s dwindling Single Room Occupany (SRO) residences as tenaciously as the Rag’s Joy Bergmann. She quoted Executive Director Rod Jones in her latest story on the sale of the Marrakech Hotel on Broadway at 103rd.

Speaking of SROs, this story about rent-stabilized SRO hotels from NYC real estate newspaper The Real Deal starts with a great headline – "Fantastic Leases and Where to Find Them" – and only gets better from there. It quotes our longtime Law Project head of organizing, Larry Wood.
