OUR MISSION:
CLEAN AND CONNECT OUR COMMUNITY.
EMPLOY THE HOMELESS.

ONE BLOCK is a nonprofit (501c3) that facilitates the filling of more than 1,000 bags of trash every week on the Upper West Side. We coordinate group events so neighbors can connect and clean their community. We also employ two full-time workers, who were formally homeless. These workers clean three avenues, 5 days a week, and are supported by ONE BLOCK in many ways.

We currently have over 1,800 local members. We have no government funding and it is only through individual donations and sponsorships that we are able to pay for the trash bags and the salaries of our ACE (Association for Community Employment Programs for the Homeless) employees. These workers now have access to health care and even a 401K.
