Last month Urban Pathways Associate Board treated the residents at Ivan Shapiro to a summer barbecue!

The annual barbecue took place at Ivan Shapiro’s back yard in the heart of Midtown Manhattan.

Members of Urban Pathways’ Associate Board were on hand to set up the event; give out food and hang out with the residents who are always eager to meet and talk to anyone they encounter.

“I love having a barbecue here at Ivan Shapiro; it shows that Urban Pathways cares about their clients. I always look forward to these events because we get to talk to new and exciting people”


The Associate Board is instrumental in planning resident focused events like the barbecue, game night, and other events centered on having Urban Pathways’ formerly homeless men and women better re-acclimate into society and their respective communities.

Join Urban Pathways and our Associate Board for their next fundraising event this September 13th at the Southwest Porch in Bryant Park. Sundown Social will be taking place from 7pm-9pm!

People enjoy the evening at Bryant Park

Thank you to the Associate Board, the staff at Ivan Shapiro and you!
