Every year, the NYC Department of Homeless Services conducts the Homeless Outreach Population Estimate (HOPE). Thousands of volunteers canvass parks, subways, and other public spaces to count the number of people living unsheltered in the city. PIX 11 interviewed Dr. Charles Corliss about the homeless problem in Northern Manhattan.
As an IRS 501 (c)(3) free standing community-based and community-guided not-for-profit organization in the heart of Inwood, ICS has survived financially over the past 36+ years through essentially three sources of revenue:
- Government contracts attained through rigorous RFP (Request for Proposal) processes
- Medicaid, Medicare and insurance fees for ICS's professionally-licensed clinical services
- The generosity of community residents and other ICS supporters
This last category of support enables ICS to enhance certain of its programs and activities and also offset the costs of what have become ICS traditions: the annual Thanksgiving Turkey Fund and the annual ICS Christmas Holiday Toy Drive.
