VOLUNTEERS OF AMERICA - GREA...

Helping those in need.

VOA-GNY's mission is to empower the families and individuals we serve to live safe, healthy and productive lives.

Since 1896 Volunteers of America has been helping the most vulnerable of our neighbors put food on the table and a roof over their head and lifting them from despair Today, we have stayed true to our mission "to go wherever we are needed and do whatever comes to hand" and while we still make sure people's basic needs are met, we take it so much further. We work to break the cycle of intergeneration poverty and give preschoolers with special needs, many who also live in poverty, all the therapies they need to be prepared for success in kindergarten, laying the foundation for success in life. We make sure that the adults living with us who have intellectual disabilties - many who are survivors of Willowbrook State School - are living safely and with dignity, integrated into the community. For the older adults we serve who are trying to "age in place" in their own home in the community rather than face an out-of-home placement, we make sure they are not isolated, have all the services they need, and stay in touch with them regularly. For veterans we offer a cmprehensive continuum of care, from homelessness prevention and shelter for the chronically homeless to transitional housing for veterans and their families, and permanent supportive housing. In fact we are the largest provider of permanent, supportive housing for veterans in the area. The list of the people we help and services we provide and "everyday miracles" we help create, goes on.
