Our First Virtual Benefit

Thanks for joining us at Community Through Cooperation 2021

Thanks to our supporters, partners, advocates, and friends for making our first virtual gala a huge success! We celebrated HDFC co-ops, raised money to continue our programs and services, and honored the 2021 Community Through Cooperation awardees. We also made a very special announcement about our work: we’re launching the Co-op Improvement Program to reach the 283 distressed HDFC co-ops around New York City that are at risk for foreclosure.

It’s not too late to support our work! Your donation gives New Yorkers access to homeownership, safety from eviction, and a place to age in place with dignity. Click here to make a donation.

Thank You to Our Sponsors
