MARC is a peer-run organization which strengthens families, helps in growing a sustainable regional economy, cultivates leadership and philanthropy, and fosters respect for citizens. As a resource center, we improve the quality of life in New York by ensuring that every New Yorker has access to resources in crisis prevention, intervention and response. We believe that everyone has the right to be treated with respect and dignity, and to access relevant resources and trusted support when life gets tough.
The purpose of Multi Assistance Resource Centers is to facilitate delivery of social and public health services to qualified clients provided by nonprofit organizations and government agencies. Such as applying for nutrition assistance in getting meals or groceries, medical and mental health services delivery, transportation to doctors’ appointments and one-time financial payments for living expenses like rent and utilities.
Our full suite of services delivered through our resource center in New York is designed to strengthen the fabric of worn and distressed communities, bridge opportunity gaps, and equip underserved people with the tools for success. Through a focus on both intervention and prevention, we help anyone struggling to meet basic needs for food, clothing, and shelter while providing job readiness training and placement, health, and wellness education, and much more. Our ultimate goal is to help people lead a good life as we rebuild and restore strong communities by cultivating health, happiness, and harmony.
To allow the homeless, mentally ill, and formerly incarcerated to lead a normal life again will require more than the pity they are offered, and that is why we have created Multi Assistance Resource Centers, a peer-run organization, to provide the vulnerable individuals with every resource, and empowerment they will need to lead a good life. Multi Assistance Resource Centers is dedicated to using strategies, processes, and approaches to cultivate breakthrough thinking and action that are research-based and context-appropriate. We are at the forefront of enhancing the lives of our beneficiaries paying particular attention to the quality of each of our services.
We make sure that research is always carried out to know how we can improve our initiative as well as the quality of each of our programs as a resource center. Our sources of revenue are complemented with the provision of the best strategies with which our services could be carried out without necessarily expending our purse.
Multi Assistance Resource Centers is not limited to operating in Harlem as we aim to service the entire New York state, and welcome clients from other states as well.
