LIFE’s mission is and has always been to provide a wide variety of social services to families and individuals who require such services, regardless of race, religion, creed or color.  LIFE does not intend to limit its services to any particular culture or religion, rather it shall continue to provide its services to those under-served communities most in need of them.  This includes services and programming (including Medicaid Service Coordination and Respite services) for our developmentally disabled community, after-school educational programming for at-risk youth, anti-gang programming, fire prevention and safety as well as access to a myriad of resources for people in need of all forms of social services.

The mission of New York Mortgage Advocates is to use our expertise and knowledge to help people in need, whether through the direct services we provide in mortgage foreclosure counseling or through our extensive network of contacts and other services.  We are striving to help save neighborhoods from falling into ruin by keeping the homeowners who love those neighborhoods in their homes and keeping the banks out of them.
