Welcome to Our New Website!

David R. Jones

I am excited to announce a new website for the Community Service Society of New York, the city’s leading voice for opportunity and economic advancement for low-income New Yorkers.  Here you'll find fresh new ways to join in our efforts to build a stronger, more equitable New York.


Find news, publications, and expert commentary on the critical challenges facing New York City—then take to the airwaves to spread the word about effective solutions and trusted information from the Community Service Society.  It’s easier than ever to find what you’re looking for, and share what you think. 


We fight poverty on a number of fronts. Find out how CSS takes on the tough issues through a powerful combination of research, advocacy, litigation, and innovative service models. Explore our issues.

Get inspired.

See how cancer survivor Yrene held on to her home and her job; how new mom Melissa fought back against hospital bills; and how former inmate Richard rebuilt his life and career.  Meet the volunteers, program partners, and supporters who are making a difference in the lives of struggling New Yorkers. 

Take action.

Become a part of our community: volunteer, attend an event, speak out on the issues, or contribute.  Find out how you can get involved today.   

More than 3 million New Yorkers live on the front lines of poverty.  With your help, we’ll continue to make important strides toward giving them a more secure economic future.

Thanks for stopping by!
