By combining affordable housing and integrated human services that reduce poverty, Phipps Houses and Phipps Neighborhoods help the people of New York City build healthy, more prosperous communities.
After more than half a century of developing affordable housing, Phipps Houses recognized that building enduring communities requires more than bricks and mortar. In 1972, Phipps Neighborhoods was founded to serve the individuals and families living in Phipps Houses buildings and surrounding neighborhoods.
Phipps Neighborhoods helps children, youth, and families in low-income communities rise above poverty. We work in South Bronx neighborhoods where we can address the greatest barriers to lasting success through education and career programs, and access to community resources.
We’re dedicated to our neighborhoods for the long term, supporting individuals and families as they establish self-sufficiency. Our services create opportunities for people to thrive in every aspect of their lives.
