HOPE FOR NEW YORK
Neighborhood Coalition for Shelter
The East Side · The Bronx

Neighborhood Coalition for Shelter (NCS) serves people who are chronically, formerly, or at-risk of becoming homeless.

Mission: To help people develop the skills they need to live independently in safe and stable housing, as well as secure sobriety and employment.

Vision: To help people develop the skills they need to live with dignity and independence in safe and stable housing.

OUR PARTNERSHIP
Volunteers foster a sense of community and support for the NCS residents and leading social activities including tea time and bingo.
NCS holistically comes alongside the homeless and builds relationships with them to foster a sense of belonging.
Tea time and bingo are just a few ways our volunteers help build relationships and foster community among residents to encourage positive, healthy activities!
VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

Sandwiches, Coffee & Bingo

Bake your favorite dessert and share it with residents at the NCS Residence! This residence is a long-term, supportive housing facility on East 81st Street in Manhattan and houses 65 formerly homeless men and women, the majority of whom are mentally ill and have been chronically homeless.  

During this Saturday program, volunteers eat, socialize with residents, and lead a bingo game and share prizes. Volunteers also make the sandwiches and coffee that will be provided or prepare prizes for bingo. 

Lead Activities for Young Adults Aged Out of Foster Care  

Build relationships with young adults who have aged out of foster care. Louis Nine House, located in the Bronx, served 40+ young adults who are homeless or aging out of foster care. Mature, Christian volunteers get to know the residents through leading social activities (game nights, arts & crafts) and outings (movies, bowling, museum). These volunteers can also apply to serve as a mentor to the young adults and work one-on-one with the residents. 

 

Volunteers under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or a family member. Written consents must be signed by the parent or legal guardian and returned to the NCS agency.

Prayers for Our Homeless Neighbors
February 13, 2017
Homelessness in NYC has reached the highest levels since the Great Depression. More than 60,000 New Yorkers sleep in the shelter system each night, and thousands more sleep on the streets. Let's lift up these neighbors to our God who intimately identifies with our homeless brothers and sisters.
