By employing a small staff which offers direct, compassionate services, EIS seeks to keep New Yorkers in their homes through legal assistance, hoarding awareness and counseling.

COMEDY NIGHT TO BENEFIT EIS
Sharon Scott, the Community Affairs Director at Ravenswood Plant, and her team joined EIS and an enthusiastic crowd at Comedy Night on May 10. Ravenswood Plant continues to be a long- term Foundation partner of EIS.
Although the comedians were great, the real stun for the evening might have been this EIS resident who shared her EIS success story with the crowd.
