- NYSoM (New York State of Mind) is a volunteer-based organization dedicated to improving the lives of individuals and families living in low-income communities within the New York City Metropolitan Area with the aim of providing an avenue of hope to break the cycle of poverty.
We aim to further our mission through three main channels:Community Service Projects – we partner with various organizations in NYC to offer services to the following targeted demographics: the homeless, the elderly, at-risk youth, the disabled, low-income families. Community Events – we host a multitude of events, often educational or recreational in nature, throughout the year with the hopes of offering residents in our target communities a positive alternative to their normal surroundings. Community Outreach Programs (in development) – our goal is to offer a number of programs directly to sectors of our target communities including senior citizens, children, young adults, homeless & the working poor. Through these channels, we aim to continue to be both a source of service for the community living below the poverty line and an organization that can create a lasting positive impact in the NYC area.
