A Message About Volunteering & COVID-19

In light of the developing COVID-19 situation and our priority to ensure the safety of our clients, staff and volunteers, in-person volunteer activities scheduled to take place at VOA-Greater New York program sites are postponed. On behalf of our clients, we are very disappointed of course, and look forwarding to rescheduling projects just as soon as we safely can.

We know you understand this is the responsible course of action and thank you for your tremendous support. Please contact Andrew Zibell at if you wish to discuss future engagements. To learn how you can help in other ways during these uncertain times, please see the list below.


Since Volunteers of America-Greater New York was founded in 1896, we have relied on community support to help us expand our services and enrich the lives of our clients. While our programs are staffed by full-time professionals, we do have many opportunities for individuals and corporate groups to donate their time and talent to help those in need.

At Volunteers of America-Greater New York, we ensure that volunteering is enriching and meaningful to our programs, clients and the volunteers themselves. Learn more about how you can volunteer as an individual or corporate group with various opportunities throughout the year.

Get involved as a group, family or individual.

Volunteers of America-Greater New York operates its programs and services with high ethical standards consistent with laws and regulations. We also expect that vendors, contractors, volunteers, and other entities that partner with our organization do the same.
