Our Advocacy

Volunteers of America-Greater New York is dedicated to helping those in need live safe, healthy, and productive lives.  

We are active in many coalitions, working closely with other nonprofit and human services organizations on issues of common interest. Our collaboration with these coalitions, businesses and local, state and federal government officials provide us the opportunity to successfully advocate on behalf of those in our community in greatest need – individuals, children and families we are committed to serve.
