He’s Funding a Powerful New Tool to Help Tenants
RENTERS’ RIGHTS: This new app, created by JustFix.nyc, helps tenants document and resolve problems with pests, mold, heat, and hot water.

Enders Voorhees graduated from Dartmouth in 1914 and went on to become a top executive at U.S. Steel Corporation.

Forty-five years ago, he created a fund leaving it to us to figure out how to respond to the needs of New Yorkers.

We recently used his fund to support JustFix.nyc, a nonprofit group that developed an app to deal with landlord problems.

In just two years, the app has helped thousands of tenants, organizers, and attorneys file complaints, join with neighbors, fight evictions, and get repairs done. We think Mr. Voorhees would be pleased.

You, too, can help others. Leave a legacy of kindness that stands the test of time.
