Support Us

Since its founding in 1988, Ascendant Neighborhood Development (AND) has supported the stabilization and growth of East and Central Harlem communities, advocated for preservation of affordable housing, and helped thousands of New Yorkers live with dignity and respect. Today, Harlem, Northern Manhattan, and communities across New York City are reckoning with a new kind of housing challenge, as rapid increases in market-rate residential and commercial development propel speculation, drive up rents, and encourage tenant harassment and displacement.

But we can’t do it alone, we need supporters like you to us create positive change in Manhattan and beyond.
