Announcement

It is with great sadness and deep regret that we inform our NHS family of the passing of our colleague and friend Danielle Benjamin.  Danielle was a valued member of our work family here at Neighborhood Housing Services of Staten Island. Danielle came to us one year ago as an intern through the Young Adult Internship Program (YAIP). During the internship her joyful demeanor, work ethic and enthusiasm persuaded us to hire her as program assistant. Since then she has been growing in knowledge, skills and responsibilities.  It was a delight to see her blossom into a thriving young professional woman.  When recently asked what she found rewarding about her work she said, “My work is rewarding because I am always up for learning new things that can help me further my goals in life.” 

Words cannot express our sincere condolences to Danielle’s family and friends.  Each of us at NHS not only grieves at the passing of a wonderful person and friend but also for the loss her family suffers.  Danielle made a huge impact on our office and our work in many ways and will be greatly missed. 

 

Rest in Peace Danielle.

Mission

Our mission is to create and maintain sustainable resilient homes and communities.

Vision

We envision a place where families are in homes and communities that are affordable, well-designed and maintained in a manner that supports the health, safety and economic stability of residents.

Guiding Principle

Working on the premise that long-term economic vitality, environmental health, and social cohesion are necessary and interdependent; and that the health of one determines the health of all; we take an integrated approach to developing sustainable communities where the needs of the present residents are met without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own.


NHS of Staten Island provides programming that engages communities in Staten Island, for Social, Economic and Environmental transformation, development and resilience.

Social Development and Impact

Building social capital and equity refers to the norms and networks that enable people to act collectively for a better and more resilient community.  NHS of Staten Island engages these networks by promoting Resident Leadership and increasing communities’ ladder of participation to be better positioned to assist in creating and maintaining clean, safe, healthy, livable, resilient and sustainable communities.
