Dear Friends,

The season of thanks is here, and we are so grateful to have members back in our day programs and families returning in person to the Memory Arts Café. The isolation during the pandemic was hard on caregivers who struggled to juggle their schedules and maintain safe care for a loved one with dementia. Sixteen months of isolation took a toll on the social, emotional, and physical well-being of members too. Since our doors reopened last July, we’ve witnessed the gradual brightening of smiles on the faces of members and caregivers alike. 

And yet, New York Memory Center’s future is not secure, and we need your help. City and state regulations have capped our attendance at 25% of capacity, and we have not been able to offer extended hours. Our day program is lively with about 13 in-person members and others joining virtually, but financially this is not sustainable. Our income has been severely impacted while bills still have to be paid. Your donations will help us make up some of the losses.

In addition, once we are allowed to return to full attendance, we will need some time and money in the bank to hire more program staff and drivers. As with so many other businesses and agencies, we had to lay off staff when our doors closed back in March 2020.

So, I’ll be blunt: if you are grateful for New York Memory Center and the services that we have provided to hundreds of Brooklyn families for nearly 40 years, please give as generously as you can. Use the return envelope, call us with a credit card donation, or give online through Network for Good.

Thank you for your past support and for what you can give between now and the end of the year.

I wish you all the best for the holiday season.



Josephine Brown

Executive Director
