CORE Services Group

Eradicating Homelessness & Joblessness in Urban Communities

Since 2005, CORE has worked on behalf of individuals and families to provide emergency and transitional housing, while helping them to stabilize their lives and seek permanent housing. CORE is fundamentally committed to treating individuals and families with dignity and respect throughout the process.

As one of the Department of Homeless Services' (DHS) valued non-profit partners, CORE’s programs strive to fully engage individuals/families. They can take full advantage of extensive onsite evidence-based programming, that’s grounded in comprehensive assessment, ongoing case management, and evidence-based practices.

CORE’s case managers and program staff help individuals/families use available programs to improve life skills, gain/regain interpersonal and employability skills, develop financial skills; develop or enhance job skills, access livable wage jobs, and permanent or transitional housing.

CORE provides more than 800 beds of emergency, transitional and shelter-based housing, case management, and the provision of vocational and other supportive services to New York’s most vulnerable and difficult-to-serve homeless families, single adults and runaway youth in Brooklyn, Bronx and Upper Manhattan.

CORE has successfully implemented programs funded by the New York City 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 is a minority-governed and community-based, 501(c)(3) non-profit human services and community development organization, headquartered in Brooklyn, NY.
