Our Mission

EIS Housing Resource Center has as its mission to prevent homelessness which we accomplish by keeping residents in their communities, preserving existing affordable housing, and promoting and supporting the construction of affordable housing for low, moderate and middle-income households.

EIS strives to protect and improve the quality of life of all New Yorkers by stabilizing the neighborhood. We help preserve the existing affordable housing stock by advocating for and educating tenants and aim to keep all people, especially families with children under the age of 18, seniors, the homebound, and the physically and/or mentally impaired in their own apartments, promoting the safety and security of our neighborhoods.

EIS programs of homelessness prevention were established under the leadership of our founder Gloria W. Milliken who believed that prevention was the only way to stem the unceasing tide of homelessness. This belief and purpose remain.
