Early last spring, GOSO made an appeal to supporters to help with our recovery from the East Harlem explosion and jump-start a 3-year to dramatically increase capacity and improve program services. We are deeply grateful for the wonderful response we received and are pleased to announce that we have signed a lease on a highly visible street-level space a few doors down from our East Harlem office. Renovations are virtually completed and we expect to be moved into the new space by the second week of January.
