The Prince George is located in the heart of the Flat Iron district of Midtown - Manhattan on 28th street. We are a part of a larger Non-Profit, Social Services agency called The Center for Urban Community Services (CUCS). We primarily offer housing for low income individuals as well as supportive housing to formerly homeless individuals who have suffered various forms of traumas in their past, generally leading to mental illnesses, and substance abuse.
The Prince George has 415 units of supportive housing in one building with a staff of 24 dedicated on-site clinicians. We provide Evidence Based, Person Centered, Recovery oriented services to our clients in order to help them live as full and satisfying lives as possible. We strive to help our clients fully reintegrate into the larger community such as helping them to obtain employment, substance abuse recovery, return to school, volunteer, and/or helping them rekindle passions that they had before they became ill.
