NCS produces and distributes Street Sheets, a pocket-sized guide to free meal programs on the Upper East Side and other resources throughout the city. Thousands of these guides are handed out annually both at meal programs and other community centers and by individuals interacting with people on the street. 31% of homeless individuals in NYC identify as Hispanic/Latino, and NCS is now able to provide these helpful guides to those more comfortable with Spanish. To download and print copies of Street Sheets in Spanish, click here, and for English, click here. Coming Soon: Street Sheets for the Upper West Side! Check back soon for more information.

In January 2018 NCS began a new pilot, the Homelessness Engagement and Leadership Program (HELP). Through HELP, NCS will offer workshops designed to educate the general public about homelessness, dispel misconceptions and engage people in addressing homelessness in their communities. HELP workshops address frequently asked questions and equip participants with actionable information and resources. HELP will be offered to organizations including houses of worship, schools, businesses and community-based organizations. To bring HELP to your organization, contact:
