About Us

Encore Community Services "Broadway's Longest Running Act of Loving Care."

Located in the heart of Manhattan's theatre district, Encore was founded in 1977 to improve the quality of life of elderly people in need ... believing that they deserved an "encore" to life. Today, Encore serves over 15,000 seniors annually through its senior center and houses 89 formerly homeless elderly at its residence, many of whom with mental health issues. Specialized services to the homebound and physically frail include "Meals on Wheels" to 165 homebound, Shop & Escort, Friendly Visiting and Telephone Assurance programs.

Mission Statement

The mission of Encore Community Services is to provide care and service to the elderly of the Clinton/Times Square/Midtown communities, and to any elderly person who comes to us; to assist those who are vulnerable and frail, poor and homeless, homebound and lonely, frequently desperate, most often ignored; to help them with their daily needs that they might live as independently as possible, with dignity and decency, in a non-institutional manner, in a safe and caring environment. We believe we are all part of the human family and have an obligation to love one another. By nurturing, respecting and enabling, Encore hopes to improve the quality of an older person's life, in an approach that emanates from the core of Encore's commitment: we believe that what we do comes from the heart, and the heart is the center of all.
