Our client base has fundamentally shifted since the pandemic began

Since the beginning of COVID, we have seen our demographics rapidly shift, with Latinx clients doubling, and the Asian population tripling; this is due to extensive outreach into 20+ communities in Brooklyn and Queens. Numbers in local catchment areas remained steady.
