Meets pressing community needs by mobilizing caring New Yorkers in volunteer service.

Our Commitment to Diversity & Inclusion

When diversity, equity, and inclusion are embedded in creative compassionate service, powerful things happen.

We serve vulnerable populations in the most culturally and ethnically diverse city in the world. That is why at New York Cares, we see and celebrate diversity in all its many forms.

We care about creating strong connections, so we are committed to building a workforce that reflects the clients and communities we serve. Representation matters.

We care about creating positive impact. Leveraging ideas from individuals and partners with different backgrounds and varied perspectives is how we find the best solutions to pressing community needs.

We care about employee engagement. We strive to build a workplace where every employee feels valued, finds a place of belonging, and brings their true self to work. We believe happy authentic employees are creative and committed.

We believe everyone has value but not everyone has opportunity. We strive towards equity in the workplace and in the marketplace. We are working to ensure our employees and clients are included in the wealth of opportunity that this city has to offer.
