New Direction Services

New Direction Services Inc. recognizes the impact of the novel Coronavirus pandemic (COVID- 19) in our neighborhoods and communities.

As such, NDS is sharing this comprehensive list of relief measures for anyone who needs it.


COVID-19 is a true test of the resilience of our communities and neighborhoods and we must therefore work together and make necessary sacrifices to survive this global threat. As developments evolve, further updates on our programs and services will be presented. Our focus of food delivery to our vulnerable senior and disabled population continues.

Please support us in any way you can.

Our History

New Direction Services provides resources and services in all 5 New York City boroughs. We are a 501(c)3 non profit organization with tax exempt status granted by the Federal government in April, 2000. We began a cooking class for seniors at a senior housing complex (Bridgeview) in May, 2000. The seniors complained about their food insecurity issues after their monthly social security was used up on rent and medications. As a result, the food pantry for seniors began and later expanded to the disabled, veterans and families with children when the September 11 events occurred.
