The Neighborhood Coalition for Shelter (NCS) is dedicated to providing housing and support that can transform lives. Together with its partners in the community, NCS's dedicated board, staff and volunteers demonstrate what neighbors can do to reduce, prevent and ultimately end homelessness.
NCS was founded on the premise that homelessness is the responsibility of the entire community. Established in 1982 by religious and community leaders on Manhattan's Upper East Side, NCS offers an array of housing and comprehensive services, including counseling, substance abuse treatment, vocational and educational programs, and employment support. In addition, NCS conducts research to inform the development of policies and practices, and enhances public awareness and understanding.
