You don't have to fight housing injustice alone.
We are dedicated to the empowerment of community residents. Each year, we train hundreds of residents in housing rights, sustainable practices and first-time homebuyer education, along with partnering with several organizations to use collective power against corrupt landlords and opaque policies.
For residents having problems with their landlords, we offer tenant counseling with our experienced professionals. Call ahead or come by during our drop-in hours on Mondays and Wednesdays, and we look forward to tackling your issue together.

Group tenant associations, group training, housing resource workshops

Community organizing is an important facet of our work. We support the rights of low- and moderate-income people to live in affordable, habitable housing, to get a quality education, and to find a decent-paying job.
St. Nicks Alliance facilitates spaces for community members to come together to discuss issues affecting them. Here are different ways we're organizing in Brooklyn right now:
Anti-displacement and affordable housing with strategic partner United Neighborhood Organization (UNO), a nationwide umbrella organization preserving affordable housing and fighting displacement
Environmental justice with strategic partner OUTRAGE (Organizations United for Trash Reduction and Garbage Equity), a coalition of dozens of community groups aiming to reduce North Brooklyn’s disproportionate trash processing burden
Responsible planning (GREC)
Resident Services Coordination
For residents of St. Nicks Alliance-owned or -operated housing, such as residents in our Assisted Living Program at Jennings Hall, our Community Preservation team connects residents to peripheral resources, serving as a liaison.
