New York Nonprofit Media Recognizes Director of Outreach as Front Line Hero 

On Tuesday, April 18th, Ivan Romero, Director of Shelter Outreach, was recognized by New York Nonprofit Media as a Front-Line Hero. Hosted at 121 Fulton Street in Downtown Manhattan, this annual event celebrated community members who display excellence in their commitment to serving those in need, through their work in the field to help clients receive the services offered by nonprofits across the five boroughs. Each recipient received an engraved award at the ceremony.

Over  the  course  of  a  23-year  career  at  The Floating Hospital,  Romero  has  been  promoted  from  health advocate  to  director  of  its  homeless  shelter  program.  Recognizing  that  a  lack  of transportation was one of the biggest barriers preventing people from accessing needed health care, Ivan was also assigned oversight of its transportation department.

Under his leadership, The Floating Hospital’s  outreach  activities  have  expanded  from  serving  residents  of  approximately 10 homeless  and  domestic  violence  shelters  to  a  current  outreach  operation  reaching residents in over 200 homeless and domestic violence shelters across all five boroughs of NewYork City. On a daily basis, approximately 100 patients from over 50 shelters from all five boroughs of New York City are transported to and from TFH’s Long Island City clinic.
