St. Vincent's Services Is Now HeartShare St. Vincent's Services

HeartShare Human Services Logo

The Boards of HeartShare Human Services of New York and St. Vincent’s Services, both located in Brooklyn, NY, have approved an affiliation of their respective agencies. St. Vincent’s Services will be known as HeartShare St. Vincent’s Services

With similar histories and strongly aligned programmatic goals, the two organizations will leverage shared expertise and resources to serve at-risk New Yorkers more effectively and more efficiently. We believe that this strategic affiliation will enhance the lives of the children, adults and families in our care.
