We preserve and strengthen families and communities by fighting to prevent evictions, illegal rent increases, uninhabitable living conditions, and other attacks on our social safety net.
All of our Safety Net Project walk-in clinics are closed for the time being. If you need assistance with Public Assistance, SNAP, Fair Hearings for PA and SNAP, or CityFHEPS/FHEPS, please call 646-923-8358 and leave a voicemail. If you need assistance with a legal issue in the Bronx or Brooklyn involving your housing please call 646-470-9704. We will do our best to return their call within 24 hours.
