Northern Manhattan Improvement Corporation
Northern Manhattan Improvement Corporation (NMIC) is a community-based, nonprofit organization founded in 1979 that serves Washington Heights and Inwood, in upper Manhattan. Beginning with two people operating on a small start-up grant, we have grown over the past 30 years to over 100 staff members, working to stabilize the community and help residents build a better life.
We achieve this by preserving affordable housing through legal services, community organizing, and building weatherization; by promoting economic self-sufficiency through adult education and workforce development; and by stabilizing families through social services, health education, and domestic violence intervention.
From its inception, NMIC has worked hard to empower our community's poorest residents through education, training, organizing, and support. All our services are free and bilingual English-Spanish..
