Mott Haven Community Partnership


What is the Mott Haven Community Partnership?

The Community Partnership connects residents and resources within the Mott Haven community, This includes zip codes (10451, 10454, 10455, and 10456) in Melrose, Port Morris, Mott Haven, and Longwood. The partnership is an initiative of the NYC Administration for Children’s Services (ACS) working alongside JCCA in the Mott Haven community.

In support of child safety, permanency, and well-being, we focus on the entire family and its complex challenges. Our aim is to provide children and parents with the resources to help address these needs holistically by learning to develop skills, solve problems, and strengthen relationships within the community. The partnership provides a platform for Mott Haven residents to be seen, heard, and served.

Our Mission

 Our mission is to improve the quality of life for children and families by building community and strengthening relationships that support the health and wellbeing of the Mott Haven, and Melrose neighborhoods. This includes zip codes (10451, 10454, 10455, and 10456). Our vision is a strong, connected community powered by healthy families and residents.

​The Mott Haven Community Partnership Program believes in collaborating with the community to promote equality and personal development through education.

Our priority area is education, focusing on the postsecondary education and employment pathways component of the Two-Generation approach. We will make every effort to ensure that families are consistently engaged in meaningful opportunities to develop their literacy skills (e.g., computer, college prep, and ESL classes), and become familiar with or connected to better employment opportunities. The initial and core group will consist of 30 families, who will come from the relationships the Community Partnership has developed with four public schools in the Melrose and Mott Haven neighborhoods: PS 1, PS 5, PS 49, and PS 359X.
