Support Asylum Seekers

New York City Stands with Asylum Seekers. To support the needs of asylum seekers entering New York City you can help with monetary donations. Additionally, you can donate items at drop-off locations such as NEW clothing, toiletry, and hygiene items.

  • Monetary donations: The Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City, in partnership with The City of New York is directing cash donations to United Way, serving as the designated relief organization.
