Mission Statement

OUR PHILOSOPHY SINCE 1971, CHIPS (Park Slope Christian Help, Inc.) has been a community of Brooklyn neighbors, volunteers, and friends who share a common spiritual vision to help those who are less fortunate. We prepare hot, nutritious meals and serve them to the needy in a caring and respectful environment. In addition to meals, we offer seasonal clothing, emergency pantry items, and shelter for young mothers and their children. Our dedication to service goes beyond the basic needs in the hope that all our disadvantaged brothers and sisters may find independence and the strength to meet life's challenges. All our services are offered free of charge through the generosity of our community.



- Last year, our soup kitchen served 103,000 nutritious breakfasts, hot lunches, and bagged lunches-to-go to our neighbors who could not afford a meal.

- Our Frances Residency Program, founded by the Francsiscan Sisters of the Poor and named after their founder Mother Frances Schervier, sheltered 9 young mothers and their 13 babies, and provided counseling and services that helped them become responsible members of our community.

- Our oncoing drive helped keep hundreds of disadvantaged men and women clothed all year.

But some of our neighbors are still struggling, and their problems weaken our collective strength.


We invite you to partner with CHIPS in service, and be part of our wonderful team of schools, churches, synagogues, and individuals whose generous donations have helped CHIPS stay strong for over 40 years. For example, the Park Slope Food Coop has supported us with food donations and volunteers. Our solution is simple: keep it local, and see immediate results.

Your support can make a huge difference. We're talking about basic needs, where a little can go a very long way.
