NYLESA wants to improve its efforts in lending a hand to the UN Spouses newcomers to New York City. Therefore a new table, the NYLESA SUPPORT GROUP, has been organized in order to invite members to share information about life in New York, talk about their own experience and exchange tips to facilitate the adaptation process in NY. 

The NYLESA SUPPORT GROUP will have a meeting once a a month and will be open for up to 15 NYLESA members in each session. The Welcome Coordinator will guide the group through the discussion of several topics. Among them: Housing, Children care and education, Paperwork and IDs, Finance, Healthcare, Work, Adult Education and UN benefits. The NYLESA Support Group will also be a place where members will have more time to get know each other.

The first meeting will be on Wednesday, November 8th from 10am to 12 pm. Please reserve your spot at welcome@nylesa.org.
