  • Meet MSW Students and Social Entrepreneurs Adina Lichtman and Terrance Coffie

    Mar 13, 2017
    Adina Lichtman and Terrance Coffie, both of whom earned their BS from NYU Silver in May 2016 and will graduate from the School’s Advanced Standing MSW program in May 2017, are social entrepreneurs. As an NYU sophomore in November 2014, Adina established Knock Knock Give a Sock, a non-profit organization that facilitates the collection and distribution of socks to people experiencing homelessness. The following year, in partnership with Terrance, she began organizing periodic “Meet Your Neighbor” dinners to bring together people who are experiencing homelessness with those who are not in order to foster discussion and reduce the stigma associated with homelessness. Adina and Terrance recently sat down with NYU Silver’s Office of Communications to talk about their efforts.
