Helping those who help us.

Believe NNY helps volunteer firefighters, EMTs, members of ladies auxiliaries, members of juniors or explorer groups, and affiliated members living in Franklin, Hamilton, Essex, Jefferson, Lewis and St. Lawrence counties that are suffering from life threatening illnesses such as cancer. The organization can provide financial assistance for housing, mileage, resource material, medical expenses such as co-pays, and more. Believe NNY also aims to provide educational resources for members of the emergency services community living with cancer or PTSD.


Founded in 2016 by Dale Barker, Believe NNY is a nonprofit organization based in Colton, NY. A cancer survivor, Dale founded the organization as a way to give back to the emergency services community after a local fire service raised around $17,000 to pay for his treatment and care. To learn more about the organization, visit their website
