Our Mission

The Grand Central Neighborhood Social Services Corporation (GCNSSC) is dedicated to providing immediate relief to Midtown Manhattan’s homeless population. Through our Mainchance Drop-In Center, we offer essential services such as food, clothing, showers, and a place to rest. Additionally, we provide a range of social services including employment counseling, treatment referrals, and housing assistance.

To help individuals use our center as a stepping stone to a more secure life, we have developed a client-focused program that meets people at their various levels of need. Our services are tailored to fit each individual’s unique situation, giving them choices and increasing their chances of success. We understand that for some, simply coming in from the streets is a significant step. It is these individuals, often excluded from other service agencies, whom we strive to support the most.
