The Grand Central Neighborhood Social Services Corporation (GCNSSC) is committed to providing immediate relief to Midtown Manhattan’s homeless population. Through our Mainchance Drop-In Center, we offer basic necessities (food, clothing, showers, and chairs for respite) and a range of social services including employment counseling, treatment referrals, and housing assistance.
In order to help people use our center as a bridge to a more secure life, we have designed a consumer-oriented program to meet our clients at their various levels of need — tailoring our services to fit the specific situations of each individual. We give them a choice and in doing so, we give them a greater chance of success. We recognize that for some, simply coming in from the streets is a significant step. It is these people – those usually excluded from other service agencies – that we aid most.
We are looking to expand our program by offering vocational services to our clients, but need computers to do so. A majority of the work we do with involves us using a computer and are important not only for the clients, but for staff as well.
