Share this guide with immigrants who are new to NYC and need help finding housing, shelter, food, and lawyers.
We are the only newsroom dedicated to working with immigrants in New York City. We write articles about issues that affect them, and we run a community on WhatsApp where people can contact Documented journalists with their questions and concerns. We don’t always have the answer, but we will try to connect you with organizations that can help as you settle into NYC. Send us a message through WhatsApp.
Asylum seekers who have arrived to the City since January 1, 2022, and can provide paperwork demonstrating that they entered the U.S. Southwest border, can also reach out to the Asylum Seeker Resource Navigation Center. The center can provide information and service referrals for enrolling in health insurance, mental health counseling, IDNYC and more. To schedule an appointment call (888) 744-7900.
