About Us

New York for Syrian Refugees (NY4SR) is a charitable, not-for-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization. Volunteers with NY4SR are community members who are eager to assist new Syrian families directly by addressing basic needs and such things as housing, employment, education, and medical health. Volunteers also help families connect with their children’s schools to help them excel academically. NY4SR volunteers believe that with support and guidance, these families will become contributing members of a strong Capital Region community.
