Delancey Street Foundation

Founded in 1971, Delancey Street Foundation works to provide a structured educational and living environment in which men and women, most of whom are ex-felons and substance abusers, can learn the skills they need to rebuild their lives. We have been taking in as residents representatives of our society’s most serious social problems and, by a process of each one helping another, with no professionals, no government funding, and at no charge to the clients, we have been solving these problems: generations of poverty, illiteracy, lack of job skills, hardcore substance abusers, homelessness, repeat felons, gang members, teen pregnancies, perpetrators, and victims of every kind of abuse. We have successfully graduated over 14,000 people from America’s underclass into society as successful taxpaying citizens leading decent legitimate and productive lives
