Polish Assistance provides assistance to individuals in need primarily in the New York metropolitan area. The amount and size of our budget depends on your donations. 


Once an applicant becomes our beneficiary, we are usually committing to his/her support for their remaining lifetime as most of our recipients have little chance for quality of life improvement.  In most cases, these individuals are seniors with serious health issues that have no means of supporting themselves. We also provide assistance to patients in a “long term acute care hospital”, the city’s safety-net provider of healthcare services.    


Polish Assistance raises funds through individual donations which go to support beneficiaries of our assistance.  In some cases, we will do a fundraiser for an individual cause.  Unfortunately, today elderly abuse has Janina Kokorudz’s face.  Last year, Polish Assistance donated as well as assisted in collecting and distributing funds to the Diamond Street Fire victims.
