NYC NOWC receives funding from a variety of sources and LEAF’s line of credit will allow them to assist even more people while managing their cash flow. NYC NOWC is also a local affiliate of the US Federation of Worker Cooperatives.

NYC NOWC founding organizations include the Center for Family Life in Sunset Park, Green Worker Cooperatives, the Community Development Project of Urban Justice Center, Fordham Law School, National Domestic Workers Alliance, LSA Family Health Service (“The Little Sisters”), Workers Justice Project––and worker cooperatives, Cooperative Home Care Associates, Sí Se Puede, Beyond Care, COLORS, The Sharing Place, and Third Root Community Health Center.
