This week, we continue to highlight the newest recipients of our $100,000 #SparkPrize for Brooklyn nonprofits! Today we shine the spotlight on @rhookinitiative: Founded in 2002 as a program of a local hospital in response to the severity of health and social issues in Red Hook, RHI has become a neighborhood stronghold and nationally recognized model for youth and community development, providing safe and enriching opportunities for young people ages 11- 24 primarily living in the Red Hook Houses—New York City’s largest NYCHA housing development. Youth development, community building, and community hiring—90% of staff is from the neighborhood—form the core of RHI’s approach to strengthening Red Hook’s future. Learn more about RHI and purchase your tickets to join us at the Spark Prize Celebration on February 8th at SparkPrize.org!
