Neighborhood Coalition for Shelter provides housing & supportive services to NYers who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
Neighborhood Coalition for Shelter (NCS) helps New Yorkers who are struggling with homelessness, often compounded by mental illness or substance use, to achieve their highest level of independence. We were established in 1982 by faith and community leaders on Manhattan’s Upper East Side who believed that homelessness is the responsibility of the entire community. Forty years later we are still guided by the principle that neighbors should help neighbors.
NCS provides New Yorkers who are homeless or at risk of homelessness with a home, a community, and access to the services that they need to thrive.
