Founded in 1978, Services for the UnderServed (SUS) works with more than 25,000 individuals and their families to create pathways to rich and productive lives by offering housing, employment, skills-building, treatment and rehabilitation. By delivering high quality services that address the complex circumstances of each person, we transform lives, improve neighborhoods and boost future generations. With a staff of close to 2,000 that provides $185 million in services, SUS is supported by various local, state and federal government agencies as well as foundations, corporations and individual donors.

Our annual Dinner for a Better New York is a culinary event curated by board member Andrew Zimmern to raise awareness and funds for SUS.
Funds raised will be used to:
+ Prevent homelessness and provide anti-eviction services
+ Assist women and children living in domestic violence shelters
+ Support veterans who are challenged by homelessness, depression, and/or unemployment
+ Provide 1.3 million meals each year to those served by SUS
+ Support people with substance use challenges and mental illness
+ Offer job training, music and art enrichment, and/or evidence-based care for people with autism and other intellectual/developmental disabilities
+ Sustain SUS Urban Farms to help people find jobs through agriculture, landscaping and food services
