We are an outcomes-driven nonprofit community development organization serving low- to moderate-income North Brooklyn residents. We work to cultivate a community where all can succeed.
It all started in 1975 when parishioners of St. Nicholas Roman Catholic Church responded to help their neighbors after a fire destroyed a row of frame buildings on Powers Street. St. Nicks Alliance emerged at the forefront of a nationwide grassroots movement to preserve and improve neighborhoods. The mission of our origin remains at the heart of all our work.
Now and Forward
We seek to transform lives through employment, education, housing, and health care, delivering impactful services to children, adults, and the elderly with the help of our strategic partners. As a civic anchor we carry out this mission within the context of building a sustainable community for all people through the arts, environmental advocacy, and urban planning.
