The Visiting Nurse Service of New York was founded on the principle of delivering home heath care, regardless of a patient’s ability to pay. Our mission to help those in need has always been supported by generous donations of time and talent, money and goods. We’re honored to have the trust of the philanthropic community, and of the communities and neighborhoods we serve.



VNSNY volunteers—more than 1,000 in number, from teens to seniors—help to enrich the lives of our patients and their families, and provide immeasurable benefits to our staff.

“Never in all the years have we on Henry Street doubted the validity of our belief in the essential dignity of man and the obligations of each generation to do better for the oncoming generation.”
