Housing Works is the most meaningful job I've ever had. Everyday I am inspired by my co-workers' passion and driven by a personal mission to help those who need it the most.

Andrew Greene, Chief Operating Officer

Housing Works pioneered the concept of social enterprise businesses. Today, we operate several cornerstone businesses of the NYC landscape, including the acclaimed Housing Works Thrift Shops and Housing Works Bookstore Café. Our team members are nimble, entrepreneurial individuals who thrive on collaboration, solving challenging problems, and might just launch a business of their own someday.
