Sapna NYC offers culturally competent and linguistically accessible services so that our community can thrive in their new home country
What We Do
We offer fully accessible health education and services tailored to meet the specific needs of the women in our community.
We believe that through access to information and education, women can be empowered to become changemakers in their communities
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 primarily serves low-income South Asian immigrant women and families. 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 and find it very difficult to find linguistically accessible and culturally competent information from sources they trust.
Sapna NYC Team
At Sapna NYC, we see ourselves as part of the community we serve, looking to preserve the culture and community, while supporting vulnerable populations and tackling issues that push our communities into isolation, poor health, and poverty.
Sapna NYC’s Frontline Staff
Trilingual in Bengali, Hindi, and English, our Community Health Workers (CHWs) and Case Workers are the heart of Sapna. They are leaders in creating and delivering culturally competent and linguistically accessible services for all. A CHW shares language and culture with the community they serve. As a peer, they are trusted and respected by the community. Our CHWs provide education and training to the women, empowering them to lead healthier lives and to work towards realizing their dreams.
