Programs & Services:

CSCS Programs & Services CSCS provides a number of program and services for older adults: SNAP Outreach, Bill Payer Program, Marketplace, NYC Family Caregiver, Training & Assistance:

SNAP Outreach CSCS’s SNAP Outreach program began in 2011 as a part of Hunger Free Communities Consortium (HFCC), a multi-agency collaboration. Since March of 2013, our Outreach Program has transitioned away from HFCC and now partners with AARP – NY and DFTA (New York City Department for the Aging) to provide outreach and SNAP application assistance to older adults in need throughout New York City.

Bill Payer Program Bill Payer Program volunteers assist older adults and people with disabilities one-to-one; they help them budget and pay their monthly bills on time.

Marketplace CSCS created The Marketplace as a group purchasing program to help borough-wide senior service agencies address present and future challenges.

NYC Family Caregiver NYCFCC is a program of the Council of Senior Centers & Services created to bring together caregivers of all ages, circumstances, and relationships.

Training & Assistance Training and Technical Assistance includes CSCS's Management Assistance Program, Technical Assistance workshops and one-on-one consultations.
