We focus on eradicating poverty, homelessness & joblessness within urban communities.
CORE’s mission is to empower individuals, families and communities to access and maintain employment, gain independence, and live satisfying and productive lives in communities in which they become contributing and productive citizens.
CORE achieves its mission by connecting clients to living wage jobs, real world skills training, aftercare treatment services, and safe, affordable housing.
CORE has successfully implemented programs funded by the Department of Homeless Services (DHS), NYC Housing Preservation & Development (HPD), NYC HIV/AIDS Services Administration (HASA), NYC Department of Youth & Community Development (DYCD) and the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP).
CORE’s services are grounded in treating clients with dignity and respect to help guide them to independence and self-sufficiency. CORE currently operates transitional, emergency, and shelter facilities in Brooklyn, the Bronx, Queens and Manhattan.
