About Help Now NYC

There is no emergency affecting New York City at this time. During emergencies, this site will provide useful information on how you can help others.

It is best to affiliate with a recognized disaster volunteer organization before a disaster happens. Getting involved with a disaster volunteer organization before an emergency will increase your ability to help when help is needed.

During emergencies with high volunteer demand, the City activates its Volunteer Coordination Task Force to help connect volunteer groups with disaster-related projects. If you represent an organization volunteering in New York City, please fill out and submit the volunteer survey. A member from the Volunteer Coordination Task Force may reach out and connect you to projects in need of volunteers. Please note that you are *not* obligated to accept any project requests.
