At-Risk Community Services, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to bringing human rights and economic justice to all residents of public housing in New York City.
For far too long, NYCHA tenants have been subjected to abysmal living conditions, including but not limited to peeling lead paint, lack of heat and hot water, rodents, crumbling roofs and out-of-service elevators.
At-Risk Community Services, Inc. is a collaboration between the Citywide Council of Presidents (CCOP), the elected resident leaders from each of the nine NYCHA districts, and a group of attorney and CPA volunteers who have dedicated their careers to correcting the injustices that have been perpetrated by the New York City Housing Authority.
These individuals have made it their mission to represent the tenant population. They have banded together in a united voice to demand that NYCHA provide habitable living spaces and treat tenants with dignity and respect. They also demand compliance with HUD Section 3 regulations, which requires that NYCHA train and hire residents for construction projects. In addition, NYCHA is legally required to engage with tenants in a meaningful manner and actively seek tenant participation in all important policy-making.
ARCS is committed to bringing a better quality of life to NYCHA residents across New York City.Edit
