Project Hope closed at the end of February, 2014.
Henry Street's Project Hope’s outreach workers and crisis counselors had more than 65,000 face to face encounters with New Yorkers in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. They provided educational information and resource linkage to those affected by the superstorm.
The project offered individual and group counseling, educational workshops, and presentations and referrals to services. The program served individuals, families, schools, businesses, community groups and service organizations.
Although the program has officially ended we recognize that recovery from Hurricane Sandy continues. New Yorkers with lingering stress can get help and resource referrals at Henry Street's Neighborhood Resource Center or by calling 1-800-LifeNet. LifeNet offers free and confidential mental health and substance abuse information, referral, and crisis hotline services for New York City residents 24 hours a day/7 days a week.
