About the helpNYC.info Resource Navigator

New York City has one of the largest and extremely comprehensive public health and social service systems in the world, there are only a few, if any, challenges New Yorkers can’t get help with. However, that system of services and resources is extremely challenging to navigate for even the most resourceful of individuals.

The helpNYC.info Resource Navigator is the first program of its kind to simplify the navigation of low-barrier services and resources in a person-first, system-second approach.

helpNYC actively works to use technology, best practices, language, and other innovative methods to eliminate barriers and stigmas for those in need to access services, resources, and information from our programs.

Even the website is programmed to be accessible on all platforms and bandwidths, especially government-subsidized technology like cell phones and other devices, making our services low-barrier from the first click.
