Volunteers of America-Greater New York (VOA-Greater New York) is
the local affiliate of the national organization, Volunteers of
America, Inc. and is one of the largest providers of human services
in the metropolitan New York area. Founded in New York City in 1896
as a charity staffed by volunteers tending to the city's poor,
today VOA-Greater New York has 1,300 paid staff that provide
life-changing, often life-saving services through 80 programs in
New York City, Westchester County and Northern New Jersey.
VOA-Greater New York services extend to survivors of domestic
violence; individuals and families - including veterans -
experiencing, or at risk of homelessness; people living with HIV/
AIDS, behavioral health, and substance use issues; adults with
developmental and intellectual disabilities; preschoolers with
developmental delays; older adults on limited incomes, many with a
history of homelessness; and at-risk youth.
VOA-Greater New York expands, and introduces new services in
response to community needs. As such, it is at the forefront of
building affordable, supportive housing for seniors; providing a
service-rich continuum of care for formerly homeless veterans; and
expanding its services for those recovering from domestic violence.
Battle Buddy Bridge, a peer counseling program for veterans, and
the work VOA-Greater New York is doing to raise awareness of the
impact of Moral Injury, are examples of the organization's
responsiveness, creativity and life-altering work.
Many of VOA-Greater New York's programs are nationally
recognized and meet the rigorous standards of accrediting bodies
CARF, COA and the NAEYC. Operation Backpack is the organization's
signature community service campaign that ensures every student who
calls a NYC shelter "home" has a new backpack full of supplies in
time for the first day of school.
