Ways to Give

Together, we’re making a difference.

In 2015, VNSNY provided nearly $19 million in charitable care and community benefit services, including $9.4 million that went to providing direct home care for more than 6,700 under- and uninsured New Yorkers. These vital services are improving the lives of thousands of New Yorkers, from first-time mothers and their newborn infants, to our oldest patients, many of whom are frail, isolated, and living alone. Together, we’re helping our neighbors who otherwise might not receive the care they need. Read more below about ways to get involved.


The ongoing impact of our safety-net programs reflects VNSNY’s continued focus on its mission of caring for New York City’s most vulnerable individuals and families.
