The Graffiti Network
Graffiti has established several ministry centers in communities of need. Here are some found right here in New York City! For more information, contact Pastor/Director Kareem Goubran at (212) 473-0044.
Graffiti 2 launched in 2005 with a goal of revitalizing, reviving, and revolutionizing their community. The programs they offer focus on enabling individuals to develop physically, mentally, emotionally, socially, and spiritually so that they may become servant-leaders within their families, community, and beyond. Deeply rooted, they offer church services, summer camp, a free after school program, and workforce development.
