Who we are?​

Project New Yorker - Who We Serve

History and Values

Since our inception, Project New Yorker has been committed to driving change through unity and compassion. Our journey began with a small group of passionate people who saw the potential to make a difference beyond the arena. Over the years, our unwavering dedication to our values has allowed us to touch countless lives and create lasting memories.

Who We Serve

Project New Yorker serves South-Asian immigrants and low-income residents in Southern Queens. Majority of our clients are Bangladeshi women who are diverse in background, with varying education levels, age, culture, religion, and beliefs.

NYC’s Bangladeshi population is among the fastest growing ethnic groups and according to the Asian American Federation’s report, there has been an 88% change from 2010 to 2015. Relative to other city residents they are more likely to be limited English proficient, with 53% of the population reporting limited proficiency. They are also more likely to be living in poverty and in overcrowded housing. As one of the only community-based organizations serving this population in NYC, and the only one in Queens, Project New Yorker is a unique source of services and access for the Bangladeshi community.
