The Grand Central Neighborhood Social Services Corporation's Multi-Service Drop-in Center serves a street homeless population of single adults.
Those who use their center range from 18 to 75 years of age.
GCNSSC currently provides services to over 300 homeless adults each day, on average.
These include: basic services, perhaps the most important of which are food, clothing, showers, a place to sit, and basic medical services.
Beyond that they provide a wide range of social services that include assessment and referral to treatment programs; outreach through street contacts and Network Fairs; shelter and housing placement; job-training and job placement programs; yoga; chiropractic care and much more.
Additionally, their kitchen serves 3 meals a day, 7 days a week and the doors to their center are always open to those in need.
Part of their mission is to help the homeless expand their own resources and build networks and skills to achieve their goals.
They also work to expand the institutional resources dedicated to helping the homeless by networking with members of their community and local providers as well as educational institutions.
Mission Statement: NYC Service builds partnerships to deepen and expand civic engagement through volunteer and service programs, creating sustainable change for our city's greatest needs.
