Our History

Propelled to help neighbors in need, members of the Dominican Sisters of Amityville started Trinity Human Services Corporation in 1981.  We were known as Most Holy Trinity Housing Corporation.  The Conventual Franciscan Friars of St. Anthony Province were also important friends during those early years. In 1991, to meet the compounding needs of our neighbors, we expanded into a social services center and changed our name to Trinity Human Services Corporation or THSC for short.

We remain focused on serving our neighbors in Williamsburg, Greenpoint, and Bushwick, Brooklyn, although we open our doors to people from throughout New York City. Through our Food Pantry, Social Services, and Thrift Store, we are able to help 45,000 needy New Yorkers every year.  We have been recognized as an Exemplary Food Pantry by the Food Assistance Collaborative, a joint program of Helmsley Charitable Trust, City Harvest, and United Way of New York City.

THSC is the only emergency food pantry open four days a week in the surrounding area and welcomes all in need.
