Our work together

Selfhelp Community Services, Inc. (Selfhelp) is a $100-million-per-year agency serving “at-risk” New Yorkers through a vast network of social services, affordable senior housing, home care, and Holocaust survivor services.

Our firm’s engagement with Selfhelp dates back to 2007, when this historic institutional nonprofit hired consultant Ryan Johnston as grant writer. Since that time, we have been a critical member of this historic nonprofit’s development team, handling a sizeable portion of their target research, grant writing, and reporting, while continually helping the agency’s many programs to better articulate and measure their impact.

In this way, we have helped to nurture and expand Selfhelp’s multi-million grants portfolio by executing hundreds of proposals and reports, including leading teams of directors and executives in responding to high-stakes, multi-million dollar contracts from federal programs, New York State, and New York City DFTA, HRA, ACS, HASA, Nassau County DSS, and dozens of foundation and corporate funders.

We have been particularly engaged with Selfhelp’s Holocaust Survivor Program, continually improving Selfhelp’s articulation of their profoundly impactful services for this specialized population, which include trauma-informed and culturally adept case management, home care, chore and housekeeping services, social programs, and more. This work has led to major new and continuing funding from JFNA, UJA-Federation of New York, the Claims Conference, and many others.
