Join NCS on December 2nd at 7pm for a night of theater at Roundabout Theatre Company's production of Thérèse Raquin -- a tale of love, lust and betrayal that will leave you breathless!.

The New York Post says, "Heated sex, white-knuckle suspense, spooky gothic ambience, and a confident Broadway-debut performance from Keira Knightley."

NCS in The New York Times!

There's been an influx of articles in The New York Times about homelessness in NYC. Ann Shalof, NCS's new Interim Executive Director, responds in a Letter to the Editor which was published on September 11, 2015. Click here to read her letter and click here for the article to which she responded.

Just a reminder that our administrative offices have relocated to 50 Broadway, Suite 1301, New York, NY 10004-1607. Same phone: 212-537-5100.

We've notified Google and Google Maps about the change in address (and that we are NOT an animal shelter, which is how they list us!) but the process is long. Please bear with us. If you have any questions, contact us at

Gallery Night was a blast! Check out some photos from the event.
