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

The annual barbecue took place in Ivan Shapiro House’s newly renovated outdoor courtyard, in the heart of Midtown Manhattan.

Members of the Associate Board took part in all aspects of the event, from donating food and refreshments to manning the grill and serving the residents.

“All of the residents look forward to the summer barbecue, especially after the renovations to the courtyard and community room. We enjoy talking to the staff and the young men and women who put this event together. The residents really appreciate what Urban Pathways does to keep us engaged.” -Brandon (Resident at Ivan Shapiro House)

The Associate Board is instrumental in planning client-focused events like the Summer Barbecue, Trivia Night, and other events centered around Urban Pathways’ formerly homeless men and women.

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