SiCM’s 2020 Annual Report

PROGRAM IMPACT

SiCM FOOD PANTRY

You helped serve approximately 396,000 meals to families in Schenectady County. Volunteers devoted over 2,900 hours to help bag fresh produce and box up pantry staples for our guests. SiCM’s new winter home delivery program and the inclusion of plexiglass dividers are just a few of the many ways the SiCM Food Pantry was adjusted to provide food to homebound and quarantined guests during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Watch the video below to see some of the changes made at the food pantry.

Our volunteers are essential to helping us feed our families. It truly takes a village. If you would like to volunteer at SiCM please send an email to volunteer@sicm.us or call 518-346-4445 x 1. Watch the Pantry Volunteer video to see what it’s like to volunteer at the SiCM Food Pantry.

SCHENECTADY URBAN FARMS

In 2020 Schenectady Urban Farms affiliated with Schenectady Community Ministries and took over running two additional city green spaces. Your support helped 3 farms grow sustainable food in 1.3 total acres for Schenectady residents and supporters of the farms. Schenectady Urban Farms (SUF) includes Vale Urban Farm, Fehr Ave. Farm and Hulett St. Farm. 250 farm members helped raise 8 egg laying chickens, 3 rabbits, and 1 beehive, and produced thousands of pounds of fresh produce to farm members and SiCM pantry guests.

 The farms operate year-round with a mission to lower barriers to access to fresh food. The farms are membership-based with the majority of members coming from the surrounding community. Members work the farm collectively, tending the fruit and vegetables, caring for the chickens and sharing in a harvest that includes eggs. Watch the video to catch a glimpse of Schenectady Urban Farms.

SUMMER MEALS FOR KIDS

SiCM provides free meals for children under 18 years old in Schenectady Country. You helped provide 58,625 breakfasts and lunches to children in Schenectady County during the summer months. Volunteers devoted over 1,500 hours to help ensure children were being socially distant and wearing masks at 29 meal sites. Summer Meals switched to a grab-and-go model which was adapted as a response to COVID-19 from July 1st through September 11, 2020. Watch the video below see how Summer Meals was operated.

FEEDING OUR FAMILIES

 

The SiCM Food Pantry remained open all year to help Schenectady’s most vulnerable population during a pandemic. This isn’t about a global health crisis. It’s about real people like Deborah, who have depended on the generous support of our community partners.

Deborah Matos participated of SiCM services to support her family and child. The SiCM Food Pantry provides every guest like Deborah a package containing fresh produce and self-stable pantry staples as part of the fifteen meal plan.
“I’m a single parent. I don’t get assistance from anywhere else. Tuition and books for my college-aged child are expensive. The SiCM Food Pantry helps us with food and makes us feel comfortable and respected.”
You support community services that nourish food pantry guests, grow strong and sustainable farms, offer free meals to children during the summer months, and provide hospitality on Albany Street for people needing a quiet, friendly place to sit and tell their stories. You are part of that story, of an effort to build resilient communities.

COMMUNITY PARTNERS AT 837 ALBANY STREET

St. Joseph’s Place

St. Joseph’s Place, a ministry of Historic St. Joseph’s Parish, is a place of hospitality, refreshment, prayer and conversation. Located in the heart of Hamilton Hill on Albany Street, the ministry began as a result of the dream of the late Father Michael J. Hogan, pastor of St. Joseph’s. Previously he had been the pastor of Sacred Heart Church on Hamilton Hill and when that parish closed, he was acutely aware that there was no Roman Catholic presence on the hill. Sisters Linda Neil, CSJ and Ann Christi Brink, CSJ worked closely with Father Hogan to make his dream a reality.

Three days a week St. Joseph’s Place opened its doors to the community to provide comfort, conversation, and refreshments to-go. Some of the guests were transitioning back into society after incarceration; some were lonely and all are looking for a place to share their story. COVID-19 impacted St. Joseph’s programming significantly by reducing services. Social distancing prevented the group conversations and exchange of ideas that provide a vibrant heartbeat of the concerns, hopes and dreams of an often overlooked portion of the community. Thanks to a lot of support from SiCM and St. Joseph Parish, the program continues to run today.

Patty’s Place

Operating at one day a week in St. Joseph’s Place, Patty’s Place is a drop-in support and referral center for women engaged in sex work. They provide basic services such as hygiene items, condoms, and clothing which help these women be safer in their current lives. They also offer counseling and referral for longer-term services that can help them improve their lives and leave the sex trade. COVID-19 impacted the structuring of the program and the items that were given, as the needs of the clients shifted in response to the virus. COVID-19 also impacted the population that was served. Patty’s Place saw a decline in clients that had frequented the program previously and also gained an influx of new clients. Your support meals helping these women connect and find support.

Letter from Rachel Curtis, LMSW, SiCM’s President

Over six months into the position as President of SiCM Steering, I continue to be both humbled and honored to be here. Since January of 2020, our collective society has undergone tremendous change. SiCM, an organization with heart and an accurate pulse on community, has similarly undergone tremendous change! The Executive Director transition has been fast and furious, yet strategic and methodical, and has ultimately paired us with the ambitious and genuine Amaury Tañón-Santos. SiCM, and more largely Schenectady, is lucky to have him.

In an earlier entry, I ended with the African Proverb: “The child who is not embraced by the village will burn it down to feel its warmth.” While the outcome of the conviction in George Floyd’s murder is a small victory, it is far from justice. “However long the night, the dawn will break” is another African proverb. I implore us to explore this point: If the “night” began in 1619 when the first African slaves were brought to these shores, why has it taken 400 years for a small form of accountability such as this to occur? The dawn may be here, but the work is far from over. In one of the more powerful events of my life, the evening of the trial’s outcome, The Schenectady Clergy Against Hate led us in prayer and then song at Duryee Memorial AME Zion Church. Arms linked, the lot of us sang We Shall Overcome. Resistance to this is among us. To the resistance I say: But not someday. Now.

Warmly,

Rachel R. Curtis

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT AND ADVOCACY

BLACK LIVES MATTER

 

For over 50 years, SiCM has known the repercussions of the insidiousness of social and structural injustices in the lives of the many guests we serve through our programs. The mission and presence of SiCM with communities throughout Schenectady County is motivated by the interfaith ethics and values of the over 40 member faith communities that make up our collaborative.

In response to the violent deaths of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and George Floyd, and to the violence suffered by countless Persons of Color in Schenectady and throughout the country, the Steering Committee approved a statement unequivocally affirming that Black Lives Matter. This is our way of stating that SiCM stands against racial injustice and will continue to advocate for dignity and justice.

We will not turn a blind eye to discrimination, marginalization and violence in the communities we serve. There is no room for social and racial injustice in SiCM. We will collectively work towards justice, equity and peace, standing with and for the dignity of the people we serve throughout Schenectady County.

A Message from Jo-Anne Rafalik, 2020 Acting Executive Director

 

Dear Friends,

2020 was a year filled with new experiences that none of us could have ever imagined!

The year began with the retirement of Rev. Phil Grigsby, thanking him for his many years of outstanding leadership. SICM also, voted to become an interfaith organization.

I had the honor of taking on the role of Acting Executive Director. The Capital Campaign was very successful with construction plans in place, ground breaking was to happen early spring. February 2, Super Bowl Sunday, a car accident destroyed the front of 837 Albany Street. February 16, our neighbor’s water main pipe burst, flooding the basement. Two weeks later the COVID-19 Pandemic was with us and our lives changed – instantly! But SiCM continued to operate our programs, never missing a day of operations. My many thanks and appreciation to the wonderful, devoted SiCM staff. Everyone worked under very dangerous conditions, completing every task needed to keep serving the community.

The capital improvements began with repairs and upgrades of the pantry in the early spring. Soon after we borke ground for the construction of the new community building and kitchen. The Pantry looks terrific, and 837 Albahy Street is filled with wonderful natural light from new windows with beautiful storage cabinets. New restrooms are opening and the one has been remodeled. A community, multi-use room is ready for computer stations. The kitchen is almost ready for cooking. Ellis Medicine will join us with an outreach health clinic. The second floor will have new office space. The final stage will be resurfacing and striping of the parking lot, with some greenery planted. All this has been done under the supervision of Rosch Brothers Construction and Stracher-Roth-Gilmore, Architects. Their teams have been extremely supportive of our programs, and sensitive to the needs of our guests. They have worked around all of our activities and many changes in plans. Thank you!

Also in 2020, an outstanding group assembled to begin the task of searching and hiring a new Executive Director. The Rev. Amaury Tañón-Santos began serving SiCM in March of 2021.

Ending 2020 serving SiCM, brings with it many thoughts and feelings. Thank you for allowing me this opportunity to serve in this role. There have been experiences that I never would have thought even possible.

2020 will go down in history as an exception to every rule! I am thrilled to see the ending product of the construction. Rev. Phil’s dream is becoming real, we are grateful that you had this vision. SiCM is an interfaith organization. It will be an exciting adventure as SiCM moves forward serving our community.

 

I pray that all of you continue to be part of SiCM’s future as an interfaith organization serving our community.

 

Thank you,

Jo-Anne Rafalik

Looking Ahead – A Note from the Executive Director/CEO

Esteemed friends and colleagues,
 
I continue to be honored by the invitation of the Steering Committee and Assembly to join you and my fellow staff colleagues as executive director of SiCM. I was well aware I was joining the staff and religious leadership in Schenectady at the tail end of a capital improvement project and the continued shifts in regulations and expectations of the COVID-19 pandemic. I also knew I was to join this interfaith collaborative in articulating its identity as an interfaith community committed to social justice and racial reconciliation, an identity that stems from over 50 years of steadfast engagement with the people of Schenectady County to bridge the gap of food insecurity.
As we move into the new fiscal year I am convinced we have all it takes to live into our aspirations. We are blessed with a staff committed to our work and to the Schenectady community. We are blessed by the collaborative of over 50 member interfaith communities that faithfully encourage the ethical and moral leadership of this county. We are blessed with a significant connection with thousands of people throughout Schenectady with whom we partner to nourish the most vulnerable among us, listen to stories of hardship and injustice, learn how to build sustainable communities, and together work for justice, equity, peace and wellbeing for all.
Man's face smiling
We will journey slowly and surely into the aspirations and challenges Schenectady has placed before us. The strategic discernment and planning process we are soon to begin will place us squarely in the communities we serve to listen from them what is it that SiCM should be with and among Schenectady. We invite you to join us in this process, to listen with us, to financially support our community work, to be present with us. Join us in this call to be the interfaith, social leading and justice collaborative for and on behalf of Schenectady County.
 
Peace to all!
 
Rev. Dr. Amaury Tañón-Santos
