The NCS Residence

The NCS Residence, a long-term, supportive housing facility on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, houses 65 formerly homeless men and women, the majority of whom are mentally ill and have been chronically homeless.

Our residents’ health and wellness have been seriously affected by extreme poverty, homelessness, mental illness, substance abuse, poor nutrition, smoking, and trauma.  Many of our older tenants experience difficulties with activities of daily living such as bathing, feeding, and dressing.

Staff at the NCS Residence, including social workers, case managers, and a part-time psychiatrist, provide case management and mental health counseling. In addition, we provide a full range of services including money management, vocational and educational programs, meals, and recreational activities all aimed at enhancing and supporting residents’ independent living. 

Tenants also enjoy common areas for activities and meals, including a kitchen and dining area, TV lounge and rooftop atrium, terrace and garden.
