About Us

62 years ago, a successful and philanthropic group of Americans of Polish heritage formed an organization to support World War II heroes who immigrated to America from Poland to escape communism.

Today, a new generation of philanthropic Polish Americans is upholding the tradition of providing assistance to individuals who are at risk or in crisis due to poverty, mental or physical illness. The passage of time has caused the majority of the current aid recipients to be immigrants more recent than the post-WW II political refugees.

Your support enables our organization to bring stability to these individuals by providing basic needs for housing, food and healthcare and allows our elderly to live out their years with dignity.

Our activities focus mostly on the New York metropolitan area, with an increasing portion of the assistance given to out-of-state individuals.
