Benefits Screenings & Legal/Financial Counseling

At Henry Street's Neighborhood Resource Center (NRC), 281 East Broadway, individuals can receive a free comprehensive needs assessment to determine eligibility for benefits and programs.

As a Single Stop site, the NRC offers screenings for entitlement benefits (Medicaid, Family and Child Health Plus, food stamps, etc.), financial, health, legal, employment and family needs. The NRC service coordinators advocate on a client's behalf when necessary to help them negotiate bureaucracies.

In conjunction with Legal Services for New York City (LSNY), the NRC can provide free legal assistance for low-income individuals and families. The NRC also offers free on-site budget and credit counseling services through  New York Legal Assistance Group/NYLAG.
