What We Do

 Sapna NYC offers culturally competent and linguistically accessible services so that our community can thrive in their new home country

Health

We offer fully accessible health education and services tailored to meet the specific needs of the women in our community.

Empowerment

We believe that through access to information and education, women can be empowered to become changemakers in their communities

Advocacy

Our work around social justice aims to not only offer services, but to fight towards a more equitable and just New York City

Who We Serve

Sapna NYC serves low-income South Asian immigrant women. The women we serve are diverse in background, with varying education levels, age, culture, religion, and beliefs. However, as new immigrants they have many of the same struggles of learning a new culture, navigating a new city, and understanding new systems. As such, many of the women in our community are isolated andfind it very difficult to find linguistically accessible and culturally competent information from sources they trust.
