SUPPORT OUR TOY DRIVE!
New Hour for Women and Children LI, along with Prison Families Anonymous, seeks to support children with an incarcerated loved one by providing a holiday gift.
Here are two ways you can help brighten the holiday season:
Donate a new, unwrapped toy for a child or donate gifts from our Amazon wishlist.
See the smiles yourself! Volunteer to help distribute toys in the jails from December 10 to 20. Contact us at (631) 273-3300 to volunteer for a two-hour block in the Yaphank, Riverhead, or East Meadow jails.
Toys can be dropped off at our office (please call first to schedule delivery):

INTERNSHIP AVAILABLE FOR COLLEGE STUDENTS!
New Hour for Women and Children LI seeks a college intern to help with direct service and advocacy. Learn to engage with vulnerable populations and make lifelong connections to engage with women and mothers impacted by the justice system. Students will have the opportunity to forge connections with members of the community who are often overlooked, including children of an incarcerated parent who possess tremendous potential. Some interns will be trained to attend workshops in the local jails by the second semester of their internship.
New Hour will continue to need support with activities and events organized to empower women, mothers, and
children impacted by the criminal justice system. This internship will also offer opportunities to foster relationships
with community organizations, tabling events and ensuring that New Hour is a presence at local community functions.
Responsibilities include providing logistical support for events and for administrative office support, as well as
interacting with children and moms. A minimum of 10 to 15 hours per week required. Graduate students only, must
have a GPA of 3.0 or higher, and demonstrate strong writing skills and interpersonal skills. Transportation is required.
This internship will run through both the fall 2019 and spring 2020 semesters. Please email a resume and cover letter to: Serena Liguori, executive director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
