We are committed to building communities of compassionate care for children and their families. RMHC New York Metro collaborates with and provides financial support to local nonprofit organizations who operate programs for children in the greater New York area. Through this means of support we respond to the critical needs of children right in our very own community.

Our funding categories include:

  • Child Life Programming
  • Access to Preventative Health Care & Resources
  • Maternal & Child Health

Throughout the year we will highlight recipients of our grants program and the tremendous impact they are having on children’s lives. Please check back to learn more about this program.
