The Angels of Harlem is the Community Outreach & Services Arm of Sister Shirley, the Senior Pastor of Samuel’s Temple Church, operating and serving in Harlem over the last 50 years who has now acquired a new Development site in the South Bronx to continue her work in the Greater NYC Community.
The team has just launched a capital fundraising campaign and radio promotional drive on WBLS FM, WLIB, and CBS 1010 WINS to garner support and ask the community members, corporations, and sponsors for help and to assist, donate, and volunteer on this historic project to help improve the lives of New York City families, children, young people, and the community at large.
The goal is to raise the $4M to complete the construction costs and operations of this great facility that will offer many services including food pantry to feed the hungry, preventive health screenings and education, after school tutoring and computer labs with coding classes, life-skills and financial literacy programs, GED High School Diploma courses, Job preparation, training, and career development, digital multi-media classes, referrals for battered women shelter and their children, and be a light and catalyst to drive community socio-economic development programs and services in the area and more. Donations can be made at Official Website http://AngelsOfHarlem.Org or on Go Fund Me at http://GoFundMe.com/AngelsOfHarlem.
Harlem has been the mecca of the African-American and Spanish Harlem communities of culture, art, music, literature, education, film, civil rights, and history for generations. As Harlem is experiencing many social and economic changes the Angels of Harlem is stepping up to meet the new challenges required of serving the families, children, youth, and seniors, and the health, education and welfare needs of the community at large in this rapidly changing 21stcentury in the greater New York City area with a state of the art new construction facility.
We have had several building plans developed, and have decided on one in particular. The plans we have displayed will house five floors of non-profit space and serve the Harlem and Bronx communities. The new building will house a location for medical services, after-school facilities and of course the community center along with various social service departments. The construction is estimated to be completed within two years from commencement.
