FINANCIAL LITERACY

Making a Meaningful Difference in People’s Lives

HOUSING DEVELOPMENT

COMMUNITY ORGANIZING

Organizing and Empowering Citizens

When tenants face housing issues, we help to educate and empower them so they can hold landlords accountable. Over the decades, we have brought thousands of people together to improve their homes and their communities.

ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

Building a Business Base

We believe that small businesses are the lifeblood of communities, especially when run by residents of the neighborhood who cater to local needs and keep money in the community. We provide comprehensive services to help those business owners get started and thrive.

SOCIAL SERVICES

Giving People a Home and a Hand Up

Because living below the poverty line impacts every aspect of a person’s life, IMPACCT Brooklyn provides social services along with housing for formerly homeless people, giving them the break they need to regroup and get back on track with their lives.

LEAD ABATEMENT

Making Buildings Safer

Lead poisoning is a real danger to many lower-income families living in older buildings. IMPACCT Brooklyn is proactive in remedying lead exposure through lead testing, training for maintenance personnel, and financial incentives for landlords.
