RESOURCE GUIDE

DRNY has been closely monitoring the status of COVID-19 within New York State and across the country. In order to protect our staff, our families, and our community, DRNY has decided to temporarily close our offices to the public.

It is important to know that DRNY is continuing to provide services. If you need assistance please call (518) 432-7861 or (800) 993-8982, or complete an online intake form at www.DRNY.org, or e-mail us at intake@drny.org. If you require an in-person visit, please contact DRNY so that we can assess your needs.

DRNY will continually assess the situation and follow the recommendations of our federal, state and local authorities and will continue to be a partner to you and our community as we navigate this public health concern. As information becomes available, DRNY will update the below list of resources and as always, feel free to call, email or visit our website if you need further assistance.
