About Us:Volunteers of America-Greater New York (VOA-GNY) is an
anti-poverty organization that seeks to end homelessness in the New
York metropolitan area by the year 2050. We focus our continuum of
care to address the most prevalent causes of homelessness: (1) lack
of affordable housing; (2) unmet health needs, including but not
limited to mental health and substance use; and (3) lack of jobs
that create wealth. In each of these areas we strive to incorporate
strategies that address issues of racial equity. We know that our
clients are confronting longstanding barriers to accessing quality
housing, healthcare, and employment. Our programs are designed to
ensure that our clients do not have to face these challenges alone.
Now in our second century of serving those in need, VOA-GNY
understands what it takes to heal families and individuals who are
in crisis and have experienced trauma. We operate and provide
services in emergency shelters, transitional housing, and permanent
supportive housing for close to 11,000 men, women and children
through 65 programs located in New York City, Northern New Jersey,
and Westchester annually. We are one of the largest providers of
services to families and individuals experiencing homelessness in
the Greater New York area, serving survivors of domestic violence,
people living with HIV/AIDS, veterans, and others who have
behavioral health or substance use needs. Many of VOA-Greater New
York's programs are nationally recognized and meet the rigorous
standards of accrediting bodies CARF, COA and the NAEYC.
