Sometimes a job is just a job. With CUCS, it isn’t. Their hearts are in it, they go the extra mile. They want to see me succeed. That means something.


With the fast pace of life in NYC, it is easy to forget to look around and realize how many people need help. The team at CUCS goes exactly in the other direction and works tirelessly to help NYC’s most vulnerable populations.
