The 163rd Street Improvement Council


About Us

How We're Helping

 Created in 1965, the 163rd Street Improvement Council, Inc. (the Council) involved itself in the fight against community deprivation of resources in the South Bronx. Determined to make a difference in the lives of the residents, the Council began to create affordable housing in the community.

Pioneers in the Bronx for housing and human service programs, we offer the special needs, homeless and low income populations an array of support services. Our approach is unique and innovative. We provide a range of programs, which you will see on the following pages.
