Our Mission

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.

Our Mission

The mission of the Community Service Society is to identify problems which create a permanent poverty class in New York City, and to advocate the systemic changes required to eliminate such problems. CSS will focus on enabling, empowering and promoting opportunities for poor families and individuals to develop their full potential, to contribute to society, and to realize social, economic and political opportunities.

Our Focus

Our primary focus is on the value of good-wage jobs and work supports to stimulate social and economic mobility among the working poor. Throughout our history we have embraced the idea that policy solutions grounded in research and informed by real life experiences inspires legislative remedies, volunteerism, and direct service models that bring assistance to populations in need. We continue to invest in that vision through five streams of activity:

  • Research to identify underlying causes and stimuli of poverty
  • Advocacy at all levels of government on behalf of low income New Yorkers
  • Direct service to individuals and institutions in poor communities
  • Volunteerism to strengthen community life
  • Strategic partnerships with public and private sector leadership
