Services for the UnderServed (S:US) is a $250M New York-based not-for-profit organization that every year provides housing and support services to more than 37,000 individuals and families in New York City and Long Island. S:US believes every New Yorker has the right to lead a life of purpose. For over 40 years through the work of its 2,000 staff, S:US has been transforming this belief into reality by working as an advocate for people with life circumstances marked by intellectual/developmental disability, mental health and addiction challenges, poverty, histories of incarceration, and trauma. S:US’s history has been about supporting people and communities that have been marginalized, communities of color, and communities impacted by poverty.
S:US’s uniqueness lies in its ability to treat the whole person. The organization provides a broad range of services to address needs, including affordable housing and shelter; treatment and rehabilitation; skills-building, job training, and employment opportunities; crisis services; care coordination; anti-eviction assistance; family support; and therapeutic horticulture and nutrition programming.
