On an individual level, Neighbors in Action provides basic services and referrals, helping people everyday issues, navigate social services, and resolve legal problems. We open our doors to anyone who wants to come in for help. Neighbor Services aims to serve the wider Crown Heights community by offering free help applying for benefits and healthcare, tutoring and college application help, assisting with job searching and resume building, and help with housing issues.


  • Legal Hand/Neighbor Services: NIA runs Neighbor Services out of our Legal Hand office, located at 250 Kingston Avenue. Through Legal Hand, we train local residents to provide legal information to their neighbors so they can resolve housing, family, immigration and other issues. 

  • Neighborhood Resources: We collect information and create guides for Crown Heights and Bed-Stuy residents to increase awareness of resources available in the community.
