Dear Friends,

Since 1989 Grand Central Neighborhood Social Services Corporation (GCNSSC) has been providing services both concrete and supportive to the homeless of NYC. From our present location at 120 East 32nd Street, open 24 hours/7 days a week, we offer an array of programs to help these individuals regain their self esteem and ultimately be able to find permanent housing.

Many of our clients come to us with just the clothes on their backs and are dependent on us for the mere basics which we all take for granted such as clean clothing, a shower and a hot meal. I am proud of how our staff works with the clients in improving their quality of life. However, we cannot do this alone and that’s where you can play an important part. Your donation will help us to provide an array of items needed to begin the process of re-integrating these individuals back into society.

Please take this opportunity to partner with GCNSSC and make a difference in the lives of your fellow New Yorkers.
