Homelessness and Housing
The Neighborhood House provides a comprehensive network of programs and services to homeless and formerly homeless men and women to help them gain independence and stability.
We provide this support to more than 300 men and women each year who are homeless, formerly homeless, or threatened with eviction and life on the streets. Our programs include an 80-bed Women’s Mental Health Shelter at the Park Avenue Armory; Casa Mutua, our supportive housing residence located in East Harlem and The East Side Homeless Network.
Our experienced, multidisciplinary staff provide an array of holistic services including health, psychiatric, social, recreational, fitness, counseling, legal and other supportive services that:
- help homeless individuals move off the street and out of shelter into permanent housing; and
- help formerly homeless adults retain their housing and independence.
As we address each client’s immediate needs for food, clothing and shelter, we tackle the root causes that led to their homelessness, such as undiagnosed mental illness, substance abuse, lack of education, poor health care or a lack of job skills.
