helpNYC's Giving Community

Your donation makes a huge impact on connecting the 

most vulnerable New Yorkers to the help they deserve to recover and thrive!

Since 2018 over 260,000 New Yorkers trust helpNYC to connect them with the services they need to thrive.  The Resource Navigator has become the leading trusted resource navigator for directly impacted New Yorkers and the social workers, homeless outreach specialists, service providers, and case managers who help them thrive.

We are honored to be the trusted source for over 50,000 New Yorkers a month to find help.  But, we cannot do it without your support.  

By meeting with New Yorkers by sending our volunteers to summer festivals, block parties, cultural events, and food assistance programs across the City we make direct contact with those we serve.

Please donate what you can this summer, and join us in helping New Yorkers receive the services and support they deserve! 

Why Give to helpNYC?

By donating to helpNYC you are connecting thousands of New Yorkers to hundreds of organizations and community-based providers that can help New Yorkers in need get the services they deserve.  

Your donation went to fighting hunger, housing insecurity, and homelessness by connecting the most vulnerable New Yorkers to organizations and providers verified by the helpNYC Team and partnered with us.

Since 2018 helpNYC has helped over 260,000 New Yorkers connect to the programs and services they deserve.  However, this was not done without a majority of the support coming from neighbors like yourself.
